I am looking for the meaning and language of the name of a branch of
my family that was BISTRI. They lived in Ioannina, Greece, but moved
to Turkey to Manisa (close to Izmir) during the end of the 19th
century.

I am wondering if there is any link between this rare surname and the
names of the Romanian and Ukrainian localities BISTRA and BYSTRY.
Bistri or bystry or any similar form is "quick" or "fast" in Russian.
