Meaning & History

The first available record of the Sewina family name is around 1620 in the province of Silesia, a mixed cultural region between Germany and Poland. Once part of the Prussian Empire and Germany. After World War Two, the area is now part of Poland. Apparently the family name has Italian or Spanish roots? (this is not verifiable). It is extremely rare. Some have hinted it may have to do with a particular trade or occupation? (again this is not verifiable)
