    Progovac is greek origin from Progon meaning ancestor. You have legacy of this in english names in words like progenitor. The family legend is that our progenitor Milosh, had many sons as well as many alliances, and somehow each son would end up with a different surname at modern times.



    Since I have been doing this on 23andMe I have list of many surnames both paternal and maternal I list the ones here:

    Paternal:
    Vukosav, Vukovic, Vukosic, Vukasinovic, Vukicevic, Djordjevic, Radovanovic, Radojkovic

    Maternal:

    Vukajlovic, Vujovic, Vulanovic, Njanjini, Deronjic, Spajin, Apic, Barjaca, Cicin, Popovic, Latinkic

    Actually many more on maternal because on her tree everyone is recorded while on my father only men. I tried my best to include only names that went into my blood but her tree is very confused.

    Croatian side - Bašlinović - one of the oldest recorded Šokac surnames in these regions. Origin is Military District of Slavonia, dates back to 1625.
    German side - Hornung - Originates in Kirchberg, Tyrol, firstly mentioned in year 1406. They came here as pre-colonist wave of Volksdeutsche population from the German Alps.

    My surname is a toponym and was originated in Franconia. It's from feudal nobility origin.

    Don't feel pressured to share the surnames if you think it compromises your privacy. I am only sharing the ones that will not immediately compromise my family's privacy of course.

    My own last name has variations throughout south-central Italy; mine is the Sicilian version but there are versions of it in Calabria, and throughout other parts of Italy with various suffixes corresponding to region. It's probably in some way or another of Latin root.

    My paternal grandfather's mother's surname is Lipari, which is a place name in Messina. Lipari in Sicily was named Lypra by ancient poet Callimachus, and today you find men with the surname Liparis and women with the corresponding spelling, Lipari, in Greece (final S gets dropped for women).

    My great grandmother on my paternal grandmother's side, hers was Costanzo, which has variations in southern Italy (Constanza being the other common one) and in Greece (Constantinou, Constantinopoulos, etc.) so what it might have been before, we'll never know. It's a common root in Italian and Balkan languages, you even see people in the Balkan Slavic countries with surnames like Konstantinov.

    On my Portuguese side you have all of the typical Portuguese and Cape Verdean surnames -- Marques, Tavares, Teixeira, Gomes, etc. Most of these are also common in Brazil as well, and have a uniform distribution throughout Portugal.

    On my Polish side, many of the surnames have been Anglicized in one way or another, but not all.
