I just started looking into the origin of my last name and any help would be greatley appreciated. It can be in either Romanian or English, whichever you consider more confortable.
The Visan family that I know of comes from the Dambovita county/judet from a village called Glodeni, but it is possible that my great-grandparents moved there from somewhere else. Does anybody know any specific history or at least general origin of the word? Visan is spelled with a "sh", if it helps.
