Do Moldavian surnames bow

Unlike those generic names that end in consonants, Moldavian ones cannot be declined in different cases. Rather, it will be wrong to persuade them. If you need to ask a question or tell something about someone, then the declension of Moldavian surnames will happen like this: “Maria Surucan is not in place.” It turns out that the female or male name may be declining, but the surname may not. The same can be seen in the declension of Ukrainian generic names, the ending of which also ends in a vowel.

Origin of Moldavian surnames

As in any other language of peoples, the origin of Moldavian surnames refers to the historical events of a particular family. If you know Romanian well, then each of them in translation will mean a particular craft or profession, position, personal achievements, character traits, various nicknames. For example, consider the well-known national name Boyko, which is often confused with the Ukrainian one: the story tells about a bold, quick, resourceful person who easily coped with difficulties, which resulted in the meaning of “lively”.
