I know someone here said the surnames Pescinski and Peszynski were not the same but this was several years ago. Can anyone here confirm whether they are the same or not? I am a Pescinski-Dobrosielski descendant, and there were so many spelling variants!

I checked William Hoffman’s “Polish Surnames “ 3rd edition. It appears that the two surnames are different. Peszyński (page 545) has as its name root the place name Pęszyno. Peściński (page 551) takes its name root from the verb pieścić = “to cuddle”.

Many thanks! I would say my Pescinskis were not cuddly. Sad
