I am interested in what the Surname Wietecha means in Polish. I know my Great Grandfather came from the small town out side Joslo. He left in late 1890's when it was known as Galacia. Any ideas?

the town was Sieklowka and my Grandfather was baptized at the Catholic Church there. Any help to the origin of the Name would be helpful.

Hello kwietecha,

I have a friend whose last name is Wietecha. I do not know anything about her Polish family roots, but had just recently told her I would see if I could find anything on her family once she provided me with any names, dates or locations.
So I'd love to get in touch with you to see what you have learned about your family, so I'd have something to compare with what info she prvides to me. And if you find more info on the origin of the name-I'd be interested also, so that I can pass it on to her.

Can't help you with location of vital information in Poland. But, this is a good site to use to see the distribution of the name in the world, especially in Poland. http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org/ Just copy and paste in your URL address.

Wietecha -
Polish: nickname from a derivative of Polish dialect wietki ‘flimsy’ (standard Polish wiotki).

Good luck on your search.
