Meanings of Polish Last Names #names #poland

Main question: Is there a website or other resource that gives
meanings/origins for last names what the names means and why
possible did a family choose that last name in 1826

Additional information.

googling names have not been that helpful.

my family is from Radom Poland and surround areas

last names include
#Frydman
#Borensztajn
#Pomeranc
#Kun
#Cukierman
#Ajzman
#Tenenbaum
#Szpigielman
#Swardburd
#Kaplon
#Goldberg
#Wajsfeld

So for example pomeranc means orange, does that mean the ancestor was
an orange or fruit trader?

Last names were required in this region starting in 1826 in this region
My family tree is complete back to late 1700s/early 1800s.

Thank you for your help with meanings for last names
And a happy and healthy new year to all
