How ninny people do you know whose first name is Jim, Bill, Mary, Sue, Tom? It's hard to imagine being able to set people apart with only one name. We feel it's only natural for people to have last names too. Yet man got along for thousands and'thousands of years with just one name! Probably the firs ancient Greek — whose name we will never know! There were a few families among the Greeks who identified themselves W Hh the name of an ancestor. But the tjrst people we know of who made a custom of having last names were the Romans. The Romans gave each child a first name. A second one was added to indicate the family or clan .0 which he belonged, Later a third name, usually a sort of descriptive nick-name, was added. The Romans cajled this the "cognomen." It often became the fam ly name. However, this custom died out in time, chiefly because Christianity was opposed to it. The Christians recognized only the single baptismal name, As (owns grew, many people in lie same group had the same jiven name. So different ways of denlifylng people begun to'devel* op as part of their names. One way was to mention Hie father's lame. William's son John be* came John Williams or Williamson or Wjlson or Wills, Brian's John might become John O'Brian Jrjsh), or Donald's John might become John MacDonuld (Scot- Ish.) Another way of identifying a per- was to aUach to his name the )lace where he lives or came . That's how we got names Wood, CJ-een, FoiTest, HaU. Sometimes a name was derived from a nickname. Such name: are Doolittie; Drinkwater, Scat tergood, Longfellow, White, Brown Very often a name was attached to a person because lie hac acted a certain part in pageants or plays, as for example, Angell Pope, King, Knight, So there were five ways in which last names developed: 'J. Descriptive of Hie person's appearance o i character; 2. To record some incident or activity; 3. Connect him with some person like the father; 4. Give his residence 01 where lie came from; 5. Give his occupation, but these last names were not hereditary unti centuries later. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Frank: A train just passed. Ann: How do you know?
