About the Kwiatkowski surname

Kwiat means flowers in Polish and the name came from Polish villages with that name.

During the Polish Lithuanian Alliance, Lithuanian nobles took the Polish version of their names as it was more prestigious as Lithuania was more backward then. Nobles were Polonized and adopted Polish customs and spoke Polish. Around 1890s , the Lithuanians took back their Lithuanian name of Kvietkauskas.
