The 200 most common Croatian surnames

Most common surnames in Croatia

So what are the most common Croatian surnames?

Horvat is no longer the most common surname in Croatia with Knežević now taking the honour, that is according to a report of the 200 most common surnames in Croatia by daily 24sata. 

Knežević is the most common surname, followed by Horvat, Kovačević, Pavlović and Blažević.

“Earlier in history, women would typically not bear a surname but would use the name of a father, husband, brother or a son instead. Croatian female given names are recorded in the oldest historical records between the 9th and 13th century AD, names like Bela (white), Dobra (kind, good), Gruba (rough), Ljuba (a kiss), Kazimira (utterance, speak), and Mira (peace). Many centuries after, we find Croatian surnames which echo those old Croatian female given names like Belić, Bilić, Dobrić, Grubić, Ljubić, Mirić and Stanić,” Croatian Genealogy says.
