The surname Szymanowski is of Polish origins. The name is derived from the personal name "Szymon," and the characteristic Polish suffix "-ski," meaning "son of." Thus, the name Szymanowski means "son of Szymon."

Szymanowski Early Origins



The surname Szymanowski 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. Wolczyn was the seat of the Czartoryski family. 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.
