My friend has this surname, and she told me her dad is Polish. After searching this site for the name, the name Walentowicz (without the "-yn-" between "Walent-" and "-owicz") turned up, as expected, in the Polish names, with the meaning "son of Walenty."

Does the added "-yn-" in her last name give the name a different meaning, or does it still mean "son of Walenty"? I'm guessing there's no real change, but I'd still like some verification on this.

Thanks in advance for any answers.
