BRESNAHAN Family History

Recorded in many spelling forms including Breslau, Breslauer, Breslow, Brezlaw, Bresler, Brzna, Bresnahan, Breznovic, Brezinavitch, and many others, this is arguably a surname of Polish origins. It is widely recorded in its different spellings throughout Eastern Europe, the only common denominator being the prefix "Bres or Brez". In which ever way it is spelt, the surname is locational, and almost certainly originates from the city of Wroclaw in Poland. The surname in its various spellings, may not seem to have much in common with Wroclaw, however this is a case of the city name itself undergoing almost as many changes and additions as the surname.
