Languages of publication
This article shows origins and attendance of foreign surnames in some parts of Wadowice since the second half of the 18 th century till the first half of the 20 th century. Appearance of foreign surnames in Wadowice and its regions is related to ethnically foreign colonization and contacts with the population of the neighbouring countries. For this reason, there are signs of German (most frequent), Latin, east Slavic, Czech and Slovak, Hungarian and even some Spanish and Italian surnames. The analyzed surnames, genetically foreign, are motivated by common-place words (expressions), names, ethnic names and names unadopted by the Polish language. However, hybrid surnames with a foreign base and a Polish suffix are rare.
