I would like to inquire about the origin of the last name Bazhunaishvili in Albania. I am from Georgia (with the same last name) and actually it is Georgian sirname, so I was quite suprprised when I accidently found out that it is considered to be typical Albanian last name as well and was wondering how did it get from my country into Albania. The only assumption I have is the chance that people might have got there through Ottoman Empire (Turkey), but I'd be very pleased if anyone could help and support me with the origins of Bazhunaishvili last name in Albania.
