HUMIŃSKI: most likely from humeń (Polish verison of Ukrainian ihumeń - Eastern Orthodox abbot); possibly patronymic to indicate his son. Another possibility: Ukrianian version of Polish Gumiński.

Thanks, Polonius3. It is really interesting. Would you know about any sort of a database where one can find info on people with that name? Thanks beforehand.

My last name is also Huminsky, and I'm searching for my relatives. I know my sister Erin, did a family trace. My grandfather came thru Ellis Island during WWII, and shortened his last name. Records indicated that he was Polish, but in actuallity, he was Russian, and possibly Jewish. That why he fled to Ellis Island, to escape the extermination of the Jewish people. He then became a Mormon. His new name was Jacob Huminsky. A book was written about him. I will get a hold of my sister and find out anything I can. She is a very good researcher. Please reply to me about what you know. Tanks.

My name is Donna Huminsky. My family came over from Russia in 1907. Some family members that came over had their names changed to Huminski and Humenski. But we are eastern orthodox Russian

CHUMIŃSKI: Polonised version of Eastern Huminskiy, from Eastern Orhtodox igumen/ihumen - the head of a monastery; equivalent of Catholic prior; Chumiński could have emerged as a patronymic nickname to identify the son of the igumen or someone attached to him.
