TO 6-7O47 , i v t JLo Heina Itule WHAT YOUR NAME MEANS MISS RULE: Have mr you history on WINTER and WINTERS--K.W., D.W., W.W., Long Beach; E.M., Nampa, Idaho; J.H., Fullerton. WINTER and WINTERS (Son of Winter) refer back to an English forebear who was baptized "Winter" because of his birth in mid-winter. In ancient English records of A.D. 858 I was delighted to locate two brothers listed, called Sumar (Summer) and Winter. Both the Winter and Winters coat-df-arms have a silver stripe across the center of a shield covered with checkered black and gold squares. John Winter, married in Devonshire, England, in 1609, was a settler of Richmond's Island, Maine, about 1635. DEAR MISS RULE; Have you data on N1CKOLAI and N1CKOLEY.--J. N., Mrs. L. N., Long Beach. J. N., L. N.: NICKOLAI and NICKOLEY are from the Slavic "Nikolai," a Russian and Polish baptismal name that became a surname many generations ago. The ancestor was christened in honor of St. Nicholas, patron saint of old Russia, whose name meant "victorious-army." The Nickolai coat-of-arms, granted in medieval Livonia, is a shield colored gold on the upper half, blue on the lower half, with no emblems on it. DEAR MISS RULE: May I have data on KUHN. --F.K., Artesia. F.K.: KUHN is from the ancient German w a r r i o r named Kuoni, a flattering characterization of " b o l d , keen, experienced one." Another source, "Konig," meaning "king," altered to Kunne, then Kulin, was applied first to a man who played the part of a king in village religious pageants. The Kuhn coat-of- anns from Bavaria has a gold lion on a silver background for the upper half of the shield, and a silver horse on blue as the lower half. DKAR MISS RULE: Have you genealogy on McNELIS. --Mrs. J. M., Long Beach. J. M.: McNELIS is a modern form of the Gaelic Irish clan- n a m e MacNiallghuis. This proud lineage had as their forebear a battling warrior called Niallghus whose name t r a n s l a t e s a s "Winner's choice." The early Gaelic clan name was changed to Mac- Nellis, McNeils and Nealis in the 15th century by descendants who lived in north Irish Ulster. DEAR MISS RULE: Would y o u analyze SILVA.--Mrs. R.C., Westminster; Mrs. N., Mrs. F.S., Long Beach. R.C, N, F.S.: SFLVA is shortened from the Portuguese surname De Silva. The source was the ancient word "Selva" meaning "from the forest." Portugal had few ,'fbVjesU; so /thafVffn o'iftjes'tor 'from !!£;'yQjjttejjJ? area '" wa » ^Continued ^60.'. Page, 24)
