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
I am wondering if there is any link between this rare surname and the
names of the Romanian and Ukrainian localities BISTRA and BYSTRY.
Thanking you in advance for any clue,
