Some linguists like Iorgu Iordan, in the work "Dicţionar al numelor de familie româneşti, Bucureşti", Editura Ştiinţifică şi Enciclopedică, 1983, gave to the POP surname a Slavic origin. The paper was considered to be a politicaly oriented, since most of the names with unknown origin, were given Slavic origin, without scientific arguments.
