WALKOWSKI Family History

The Roman word 'Valens' has been used both as a locational name as in the Spanish city of Valencia, and as a pre medieval baptismal name such as Valente or Valentin. In all cases the meaning is the same of healthy and vigourous. Presumably the Roman legions of the 1st century a.d. must have been pleased with their health, to call the future city with such an evocative name. Perhaps not surprisingly there are estimated to be at least forty surname spellings which have developed from 'valens'. These include Valenti (Portuguese and Spanish), Vallentin (French), Valentine (English), Faltin and Foltin (German), Walenta and Walesa (Polish), Balint (Hungarian), Velte (Czech), and many others.
