The Polish Kijevsky surname is thought to be a habitation name created from the place named Kijewo, in northeastern Poland, between the cities of Torun and Inowroclaw. The surname created from this generally mean "one who hailed from Kijewo." The place name is most likely derived from the Polish word "kij," meaning "stick."

Kijevsky Early Origins



The surname Kijevsky was first found in Polesie, the largest province of Poland. It is inhabited by Ruthenians, called Polesians, of Ukrainian descent. The main towns are those of Brest Litovsk, Pinsk, Kobryn, Kamenets, Litovsk, and Luninets. It was in this province that the renowned Radziwills and Sapiehas held their vast estates. The surname became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
