I'm a descendant of Indonesian immigrants who came to Suriname (Dutch Guyana) in the aftermath of colonialism. Because my grandfathers name is unique in my country I would liketo receive any information about the name Pawirowijoto. According to him it originally is Prawirowijoto and from noblesse (?). Most of the contractors came from Java, so I assume the name is from that area. His first name was Soedarno .The Pawirowijoto-familie only has 4 male descendants to carry on the name, not many so you see. I'm worried that the name will eventually disappear.
Any comments, in Dutch or English are welcome
