The name Wozniak is an occupational name that would have been assumed by people in the Middle Ages to demonstrate their profession. Interestingly, the name Wozniak arose from several different sources, referring to different occupations. The root of this name could have been the Polish word "wozic," meaning to "carry;" "woznica," denoted a driver, or coachman of horses. Another possibility is a root of "wozny," meaning "baliff," or other government official.
