What are the meanings of some common Romanian surnames?

I am curious about different surnames.


Answer by  ShannonPhelan (51)

The three most common Romanian surnames are: "Popa," which means "the priest"; "Popescu," which means "son of the priest"; and Ionescu, which means "son of Ion. "


Answer by  Clement (1453)

Many Romanian surnames are derivatives from the first names (Iliescu, Alexandrescu). Some others are derived from regular nouns and adjectives (Albu from "alb" - white), professions (Finar - rope maker) or geographical locations (Ardelean from the Ardel region).

Yeah i am curious of different surnames. But the fact is i like to know from which place they are from and like to talk to them more often. But the problem is i always go wrong in guessing the person's place and with wrong language i start talking to that person.
