What is the Meaning of Your Name?

Do you know the history behind your Surname? In olden days a name like Smithson meant that the person was a son of a Smith, usually a blacksmith.

What is the origin of your name? You do not have to state your name, and maybe should not list any of your titles here, but you can tell us what you know about it.

As for me I have a whole site on my heritage: Borde Genealogy

Name Your Meaning the What

Well, after finally getting a hold of my dad on the phone, I can now finally post in this thread.  lol  ;)  According to my dad, his name (my maiden name), has alternate spellings, but the name comes from England.  The my maiden name  means, 'Keepers of fern'.  It originated from a villiage named Brackin.  Which was a milling villiage.  My dad also says that two of our ancestors came over on the Mayflower to settle in the new world.  He told me much more, but I'll get to see what the family crest looks like and read more on the family history, at my family reunion this weekend.  But that's just the quick rundown on the meaning and origin of my maiden name.  :)

@Jb I have often thought about doing my geneology.  Just never really had much time to check into it.  My dad's family just did a huge book on our family history to display and have people read through at our yearly family reunion.

Sounds to me like you have a big headstart already, you should take advantage of it, especially while your parents are alive and able to give you info.

It means "Field of Marching Hares."  That's pretty bizarre. :)  And we use one of the several English/Dutch spellings of a French name.
