Powys/Powis Meaning

There was once a time (Biblical, for example), where people lacked last names, and were refered to as the child of their father and mother. Soon after, peopler were refered to as their occupations (Smith is a great example). So, maybe we could learn something about the Powys'/Powis' if we knew what the name means. Are there Latin or Greek roots in the name? Maybe if we figure this out, we can find out what kind of person(s) we decended from. Just a thought. Sorry if I'm wasting your time. =D
