My Grandfather was Grigori Bistritan and his family came from the Suceava region. His father was Ion Bistritan. My theory is that one of their ancestors traveled from the Bistrita region, east to the Suceava region, and was given the name as Bistritan meaning "the one from Bistrita." I would like more information about the name Bistrita, and it's origin, as well as information connecting other family names to Bistrita.
