About the Petrović surname

Podrjetlo

Petrovići su često Hrvati, dobrim dijelom iz srednje Bosne, prema nekim izvorima iz Hercegovine (Ljubuški), Slovenije (Ormož) ili Mađarske, a u manjem broju mogu biti i Srbi (iz okolice Belog Manastira) te Romi (iz okolice Osijeka). Razmjerno najviše Petrovića u proteklih sto godina rođeno je u srednjobosanskoj općini Busovača, gdje se svaki četrdeseti stanovnik prezivao Petrović, dok su u Hrvatskoj glavna ishodišta bila Pakovo Selo kraj Drniša, Podgajci Podravski kraj Donjeg Miholjca i Režanci kraj Labina. U Hrvatskoj danas živi oko jedanaest tisuća Petrovića u oko četiri tisuće domaćinstava (10. prezime prema brojnosti). Sredinom prošlog stoljeća bilo ih je približno sedam tisuća, pa se njihov broj do danas povećao za oko pedeset posto.

Etimologija
