Name Meaning

1 Polish: from an Old Slavic personal name, Trojan, a derivative of Latin Traianus. This was the name of a Roman emperor ( 53–117 ), who extended the Roman Empire east into Dacia (modern Romania). In early Slavic records the name is also borne by a mythical creature.2 Czech and Slovak: from the Old Czech vocabulary word trojan ‘triplet’, from the numeral tři ‘three’. This was used as a personal name, bestowed on children born on the Feast of the Holy Trinity, and as a surname for people living at a house distinguished by the sign of a Golden Three.3 The surname is also well established in Germany, of Slavic origin.
