Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Origins of the name POBEREZHSKIY #ukraine

Hello,

I am trying to trace the origin of my surname: POBEREZHSKIY. There are
not many of us around, but it definitely is a Jewish surname, albeit
sounding very Slavic. I am sure it has a toponymical origin. So far I
have managed to locate two places in Ukraine that sound like my name:
Poberezhya in Ivano-Frankivsk region (used to be part of the
Austro-Hungarian Empire) and a village of Poberezhska in Kiev region.

Will be grateful for any good guess,

Lily Poberezhska, London (originally >from Kiev)
