Post Posted: Wed Sep 20, 2017 3:19 am      Post subject: Origin of Tereba surname
Reply with quote

I have never been able to work out the origin of my mother's surname Tereba, until I was mucking around on Halgal.com last night and looking at old maps. I found the place that her family had come from, Dzikowiec in Podkarpackie (which I highlighted in red) and then looking down I was so surprised to see Tereba as a place on the map and not too far from Dzikowiec (highlighted in green). I have obviously never linked the surname as being named after a place before, but am I right in thinking that Tereba (as a place) doesn't exist anymore?

Yes, though it appears as Tereby in present day Poland map.
Tereba - z fonetyką ukraińską od podstawy trzeb , por. imiona złożone typu Trzebiesław, Trzebomysł oraz trzeba ‘potrzeba; należy’; trzebić.

Thank you for the info Gilberto! Tereby doesn't seem to come up on Google though. Good to see that the village lives on. Would it be possible to have a translation of the surname etymology?? Just want to make sure I understand what it all means.

Thanks again,
Megan.

Megan,
as to the translation I will leave it to polish speakers. I just have a rough idea of the meaning.
