The distinguished surname Broz is a Czech derivation of the Latin given name "Ambrosius," meaning "immortal." The name owes its widespread popularity to the fame of St. Ambrose (340-397), and was common under many different forms as both a surname and a given name throughout Europe during the Middle Ages.

Broz Early Origins



The surname Broz was first found in Bohemia, where the ancestral home of the family is thought to be located. The name first emerged there as a personal name, later becoming a hereditary surname during the Middle Ages. The young Broz family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval society.
