Re: Surname Urban/ Urbanowicz Origin

I'm not an expert in this field by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd wager to say that the vast majority of Urbanowicz's live in what is today the Repulic of Poland. I have been to Poland and the name is very popular at least there are quite a few listings for the name in the phone books. My great-grandfather Jana Urbanowicz came to the US from Poland after the turn of the century. Type "Urbanowicz" into a search engine, as this will show you some of the many who live in Poland today.
