What is the Meaning of Your Name? - Page 2

My father is Norwegian. Back when his father was young they didn't have fixed surnames. It changed as they moved from farm to farm, or 'counties'. At times in my Greatgrandfathers life his surname was: Oleson (Ole's son), Toverud -name of the last farm he worked on. When my Grandfather immigrated to the US in 1906 he opted to use 'New Farm' = Ny gaard. I used to think that my maiden name was so unique, until I started do the genealogy on my Dad's side. Wow, is it hard to find his ancestors. :wacko: . I have to be sure to use the three P's: Patience, Perserverence and Prayer. ^_^

Name Your Meaning the What

My family name is a very ancient one and so there are many theories regarding it's inception as well as it's meaning. Apparently many modern day surnames all derived from this one name, mine being just one of them, but I believe it may actually be the largest. Anyway, some of the meanings suggested are: "Horse Lord," "The Wise One," and "Spawn of Hell." I am not joking about the last one.

The last meaning is quite... interesting tenaheff. B)

The other meaning of my name is 'Corral'. That's a literal translation of the name, and the words 'corral' and 'keep' are written really similar in my language.

huh I have no idea on what my surname means :huh:

But I know that half of my mom's maiden surname comes from Germany, as well as my dad's. The other ones I don't know <_<

Well maybe someday I'll find out what they mean :)

Name Your Meaning the What

heh... this is kinda funny. I just had to do a complete project on all this.

My name is a topographic name. My family originated near Ripoll Spain. Way back in the day, like 1232 or so. Since then we have been in France and French Canada. Not till recently did we come down to the States (one generation ago).

And thusly the name of Ripoll has transformed into Riopelle. Kinda cool huh?

Now's as good a time as any :) And it's important, not just interesting. I just ran a search on Google for my son's girfriend, who has a very unusual last name. We found some very interesting information -- and voila! She now knows a little more about her own family. You should try it :D

That's very interesting, and makes sense too, since the "keep" of a castle is actually kind of a "corral" for people...

Depends upon my mood, I guess. Comes down to either The Wise One or Spawn of Hell. For me, I choose The Wise One, for my son........? :unsure: :laugh:

Of course, my son doesn't have the same last name as me, but it is still a part of his geneology so I still think it applies. ;)
