My grandfather Theodore Suhan is from Pennsylvania as well. He also does not know where the last name originated. He claimed that it was shortened but does not know from what. We all currently live on the Jersey Shore coastline.

I am a Suhan! My name is Sarah and I live in Pittsburgh PA. My grandparents and Joseph and Muriel Suhan and i believe my ancestors traveled from Czechoslavakia. I am not certain of this though, and i know at some point the name was changed when they immigrated to America.

My name is Shelley and I would love to know a little about my family history. My grandfather, John Peter Suhan, came to Canada in the early 1900's from Romania, reportedly with an uncle of the same surname.

Hi,
I'm Anthony Thomas Suhan (Tony) from Geelong Victoria, Australia. My brothers are Micheal, David and sisters are Janet and Gayle. My father is Anthony Michael Suhan and my mother is Eileen (Seed).
Dad's was the youngest of five with elder brothers John, Lawrence (Laurie) and Patrick (Paddy) with his sister Madge. Dad's father was George Suhan from the Terang area near Warnnabool.
I believe the Suhan's are Catholics who came from Meath County in Ireland, and came out to Australia during the potato famine in Ireland in the late 1800's, (between 1860-1890). At this time apparently one million people perished and one million people immigrated out of Ireland.
Today Ireland only has a population of 4.5 million. In 2010 my wife and I visited Ireland and not one Suhan is in the Irish phone books.
I believe the Suhans date back to a James Suhan before the 1900's.
Cheers Tony

I have the same surname. Most of my family is from western Pennsylvania. My great-grandparents were Ukrainian, though they were from what was then Austria-Hungary if I remember what my father told me correctly. They were ost likely from Bukovina, though I don't know for sure. I'm just guessing because that's the part of the empire that had the largest Ukrainian population, and it is today split between Ukraine and Romania.

Nearly every country bordering (or that formerly bordered) Ukraine has a significant Ukrainian diaspora, so your ancestors may have come from one country while identifying as a different nationality.

Furthermore, my surname was definitely changed or shortened when my ancestors came to the US. People usually think I'm Indian or Korean when they hear it, and nobody ever says it right.
