Surnames in Croatia: The oldest in Zagreb

Zagreb

The makeup of the residents of the Croatia capital Zagreb has changed significantly over the last half a century, with an influx of people moving to the nation’s largest city from all parts of the country. 

A ‘Purger’, which is a nickname given to a resident of the capital whose ancestors, going back at least a few generations, were also born and lived in Zagreb.

Oldest ‘Purger’ surnames 

The first known census in Zagreb was made in 1368. Approximately 300 homes and 2,810 residents are listed in that first census.

A large number of these surnames are still around in the capital today. Others have been changed slightly over time, some have died out, but most of them are recognised by the old purgers.
