Compare Romanoff .Jewish (from Belarus): habitational name from the town Romanovo, now in Belarus.History: Romanov is a name of the last ruling dinasty of Russia. The Romanov dynasty began its rule in 1613 with Michael Romanov (died 1645), and ended with the execution of Nicholas II and his family at Yekaterinburg in July 1918. The family were descended from a Muscovite boyar, Andrei Kobyla, who had emigrated in the 14th century from Prussia. They took the name from Roman Yurievich (died 1543), whose daughter Anastasia Romanovna was the first wife of Ivan the Terrible. Her brother Nikita was regent after Ivan's death, and after years of disorder Nikita's grandson Michael Romanov was elected czar in 1613.
