Derived from the name of a place with which the family was associated, the Majewski surname comes from places with names beginning with Maj (the Polish word for "May"), such as Majew or Majewo.

I am posting a second useful post, so that I may access member Scohenlmt's e-mail. Hope this works!

Whoops! Oh, wait, my first post was as an unregistered user...

What are 'useful' posts, anyways?

MAJEWSKI: topo nick from Majewka (now in Ukraine) and numerous localities called Majewo in Russia; or patronymic: son of someone nickamed Maj (day- and month-based nicks were often used to indicate when someone had converted to Catholicism).

DYBIKOWSKI: topo nick from Dybki or Dybków; or patronymic tag (son of Dybik ); from verb dybać (to lie in wait, sneak up on, stalk).
