The surname Sokolowski is of Polish origin, and is a locative name, derived from the dwelling place of the original bearer. This name corresponds to the Polish town of Sokolka; the surname Sokolowski came to denote a resident of this town.

Sokolowski Early Origins



The surname Sokolowski was first found in Lemberg(Lwow,) a province of Poland. It is bounded by Lublin, Cracow, Tarnopol and Stanislawow. The main cities are those of Lemberg, Prezymysl, Drohobycz, Rzeszow, Jaraslow, Sambor and Sanock. The town of Lemberg was an important trading post with the east. While Polish represents the majority of its peoples there is also a major Ukrainian representation. 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.
