Tarwacki Country of Origin, Nationality, & Ethnicity

There is documentary evidence that the surname Tarwacki is of Polish origin. Ancestors of Franciszek Tarwacki are found in Sumlin, Poland as early as 1795. The origins of the root name, "Tarwat" are somewhat more nebulous, but can most likely be traced back to the Middle East (Dr. Robert Tarwacki, 2013).

Tarwacki Meaning & Etymology

Prior to 1812, in Poland, the family name Tarwacki was written as TARWAT on birth records and official documents. Simon Tadeusz Tarwat, of Sumlin, (born 1812) lists his name as Tarwacki on his marriage license thus placing the date of the name change to the early 1800's. As is common with many Polish surnames, a "ski" was added, such as was done with many surnames based on towns and villages. This is similar to the place name "Kujawa" becoming the surname Kujawinski. It is not unusual to see alternate spellings of the Tarwacki surname as TARVATSKI, which is a phoenetic spelling that reflects the Polish pronunciation. The actual meaning of the word "tarwat" is probably most closely related to the Arabic word meaning wealth. The name Tarwat can still be found in use in Arabic speaking nations (Dr. Robert Tarwacki, 2013).
