What's in a Name (Part 1)

Every name has a meaning and last names have heritage. Do you know what yours is?

Haven't you ever wondered about your family name ... its origin -- what continent, what country, what history is associated with it, what famous people have the same last name or that name in their lineage. Every name also has a crest assigned to it. Do you know what yours is?

People should take pride in their family name ... and will, once they know the rich history it holds. With over 35 years of researching and writing family name documents, House of Names has histories and crests on over 1,000,000 names at their disposal. Doing a search is free. Give it a try and see what you can find out about your family name(s).

Perfect for any occasion, these are gifts that will be proudly displayed in any home and will be the topic of conversation again and again! Some great gift ideas for family members would be a set of mugs or wineglasses, a framed description of the history, or the crest displayed on a hand-painted plaque or even a mousepad.

If you're looking for group gifts such as for Christmas or a family reunion, why not get a keychain for everyone in the family with that name? What a conversation piece those will be. And what a stir you will cause!

Several years ago my daughter did a hook-rug pattern of our family crest. It hangs proudly in our study - a beautiful and meaningful work of art.
