How long have people been using surnames?
“Hey, Shorty!” “Hi, Skinny.” “Here comes Blondie.” Does it sound familiar to you?
It's a perfectly natural way to call people give them a name that describes them. And that's
exactly the way first names were given originally. A golden-haired girl might be called
Blanch ( French for “white”), a boy might be called David because it means “beloved”.
A first name was all anybody had for thousands of years. Then, about the time the
Normans conquered England in 1066, last names or surnames , were added to identify people
better. The first name wasn't enough to tell one person from another. For example, there
might be two Davids in town, and one of them was quite lazy. So people began to call this
one “David do little”. And this became David Doolittle.
The surnames were originally called “ekenames”. The word “ekemeant “also”. And
by the way the word “nickname” came from this old word. When people got into the habit of
giving a person two names, they thought of many ways of creating this second name.
For example, one way was to mention the father's name. If John had a father called
William, he might be called John Williamson, or John Williams, or John Wilson, Will's son,
or John Wills.
Another good way to identify people with second names was to mention the place
where they lived or came from. A person who lived near the woods might be called Wood, or
if he lived near the village green he might be called John Green. And then, of course, the
work that a person did was a good way to identify him, So, we have surnames like Smith,
Taylor, and Wright (“Wright” means someone who does mechanical work).
1. A lot of original names described people in this or that way.
2. People always had two names.
3. The Normans, who conquered England in 1066, stopped the tradition of giving
people second names.
4. Second names were given to people to address them more politely.
5. The text mentions three ways of creating people's surnames.
6. To “identify” means to “show who someone is”.
