from my experience, those "stone" names in Polish(i.e. last-names that end with "Kamien") are probably
a translation of the German "Stein" last-names into
Polish (e.g. GoldStein, FeuerStein, etc).
If you are researching your family tree, also search
for the last-name "unterstein".
In my case, my Grandmother's last name was
ROGOWYKAMIEN which means "Corner Stone" in Polish. It
was a translation of the German ECKSTEIN last name.
