How would you go about finding out what your surname means? I've never really thought about the meaning of my surname before, and after reading this, I'm interested in learning... but how?

What is the Meaning of Your Name? Research Genealogical

When I was just starting my genealogy, I went on-line and just typed my maiden name into the search engine and then visited nearly every site that came up. Then I did my first name. When I got tired of that futile game, I typed in Norwegian Names. That's 'cause my dad is Norwegian. Then I visited some of those sites. That is where I found out about my surname.

I haven't tried looking up my mother's maiden name or the surnames from her side of the family. I got buried under other genealogy information. Sometimes it is just as easy to ask the oldest person with the surname~ quite often they will know.

Perhaps someone else knows of a web site that has helpful links.

My ancestors come from a small town in Holland, actually I'm not sure how small it is, but I say small just because it sounds good. lol

Anyway, in this town is an old church, and the town came to be known as the town of old church, and so everyone who comes from that town has the surname of Old Church, or in dutch it's Ouderkirk.

Page 3 What the Meaning Your Name

My surname is of Greek origin, and means the following:

Helper of mankind, defender of men

I also found out it is very common in Scotland. My understanding is that my current surname was granted to my ancestors after they came over to the Caribbean from India as indentured laborers. It would be interesting to trace past that point to find out about my descendants and heritage.
