How to order this book


Defining the meanings and derivations, as well as giving associated names, for over 2,000 surnames, Stufflebeem, Brockway & Sturt answers that perennial question, 'What's in a name?'

A good deal of intriguing information about our ancestors, in fact: where people lived, or where they hailed from, what they looked like, their jobs, nicknames, morals, personal habits, and even important events in their lives. Here too are the origins of such revered American names as Roosevelt and Rockefeller, as well as surnames which, while they may have originated in Britain, Ireland or elsewhere, have become commonplace, sometimes in adapted versions, in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Packed with information that goes back to Saxon times, or to the days of Celtic chieftains and Norman knights, Stufflebeem, Brockway & Sturt is at once a delightful journey through our shared history, and a highly readable work of ready reference.
