Witwicky is a surname frequently used by characters in the Transformers franchise.

Contrary to popular belief, Witwicky is a real name... but a vanishingly rare one. The U.S. Social Security Death Index records the passing of only two people with that name in the United States in the last 50 years.[1] However, the alternate spelling Witwicki is a relatively more common one, occurring 33 times in the Social Security Death Index.[2] It is possible that the name originates from the Poland/Ukraine area of Eastern Europe, specifically the village of Witwica, and that the name itself means 'the one from Witwica'.[3]
