NAMING PATTERNS

geraldine's picture

 In the past the children were usually named after their parents and their parents brothers and sisters. Also through the religious times a lot of Biblical names were used and followed through the years. This custom is still carried out to some degree and in modern times we tend to use and manufacture new names. Surnames as used today did not appear as a rule until the times of the Crusades.
