The name seems to be of Romanian origin. Of course, after hundreds of years who knows where people end up.

I would be guessing it comes from Bessarabia

60 people in Poland with this last name.

Kościan: from kość "bone" or in Eastern Poland from the name Konstanty (diminutive Kostek). It's a Polish name, but can be used by a person of any ethnicity or religion.
