Ancient Surnames

Surnames -- our last names -- each hold a story handed down for hundreds of years, and yet many people don't know what their story means, or where it originated. Most last names have a unique history that tells us something about the ancestors from medieval times who gave us our surnames.

There are thousands of names listed on these pages, the result of years of research from individual requests and do not represent a complete listing of all names. They were simply responses to requests for surname origins.
