About the Turyn (Turin) surname

The Turyns of Warsaw spelled their name in Hebrew "טארין" in the early 1800's. Later they changed the spelling to "טורין". The surname "טארין" is identical to the hebrew spelling Tarjian, Hungary (a jewish tiny jewish shtetl that appears to have very late surname adoption) leading to speculation that the Turyns of Warsaw potentially emigrated from Hungary or from the same locale as the folks who ended up in Tarjian, Hungary.
