SURNAME SATURDAY


WHAT’S IN A NAME

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MOST UNUSUAL FAMILY NAMES?

COUSINS.…ALTHOUGH THIS IS ONLY BY MARRIAGE

SNOW, ONCE AGAIN, MARRIAGE

GRAVES….MARRIAGE AGAIN, DOGGONEIT!!!!

BOONE…NOW THERE IS SOMETHING

MAYBERRY… MY FIFTH GREAT GRANDFATHER, G W MAYBERRY

GROSS…MY FOURTH GREAT GRANDMOTHER, I THINK THEY WERE VERY CLEAN PEOPLE

MERRY….AN INCREDIBLY HAPPY FAMILY THAT MARRIED MCCALL

EVEN A SMITH IS IN THERE, ALL FAMILIES HAVE ONE I BET

AS YOU CAN SEE THESE ARE NOT FUNNY. ALL NAMES HAVE MEANING. LOOK UP THE MEANING OF YOUR SURNAME. IT IS QUITE INTERESTING.

PICKENS.……

The meaning of Pickens come may come from a profession, such as the name “Carpenter” which was given to woodworkers. Many of these profession-based family names might be a profession in another language. Because of this, it is essential to know the nationality of a name, and the languages used by its ancestors.
