In Reply to: Last Name - Fotas - Greek? posted by Jennifer on October 04, 2001 at 14:31:09:
: I have come across some pictures of my grandmother's family. The last name is Fotas. My great grandmother's name was Constantina Fotas. Is this Greek? The picture was taken in Poland, and my family married Polish people before coming to the U.S. Were there Greeks in Poland at the turn of the century? Fotas doesn't sound Polish.
Yes, FOTAS is a greek surname. And "Constantina Fotas" sounds like a greek name. I would not be surprised if greeks were living in Poland at the turn of last (20th) century. I'm pretty sure they would have been. Greeks have existed in many parts of Europe for generations.
