Dąbrowski (feminine: Dąbrowska, plural Dąbrowscy) or Dabrowski is the 11th most common surname in Poland (87,304 people in 2009);[1][2] this is down from an apparent rank of 4th in 1990.[3] Dąbrowski is a habitational name derived from the placename 'Dąbrowa' or 'Dąbrówka', which is used for several specific places in Poland or generically as "oak grove", the English meaning for these Polish words.[4][5] The surname Dobrowski is a variant of Dabrowski,[6] and Dobrosky is a transitive variant.[7] Dobrowski also has an independent origin as a habitational name derived from the placename 'Dobrów'.[6] The text-figure below summarizes the relationships among these various words. Dąbrowa (or) Dąbrówka → Dąbrow(ski/ska/scy) → Dabrowski → Dobrowski → Dobrosky ↑ Dobrów Due to the Polish pronunciation of Dąbrowski /dɔmˈbrɔfskʲi/ The ą letter is roughly pronounced 'ahn', so this is why you have the 'dombrowski' spelling (also, remember the 'w' is pronounced as a 'v').
