This sight lists Surnames common in Poland and the area where the surname is found. The website is in Polish, but is very easy to figure out- you just click on the first letter of your surname and it opens up all names that start with that letter. When you click on a name, it takes you to a map, showing you the location where the name is found. It takes a while to load all the names.
The other tab on this site (spelled “Imiona”) lists the 30 most common male and female first names in Poland.
