How the increase of population created
a domarid for surnames--The changes
of language--Strange motamorphoses
and freaks of fancy.
lIIrpers' Bztaqr.
There might be much amusemont
in tracing the origin of family ]
names. Long ago-say about six 1
or seven hundred years since--there
wore no family names at all. Such
at present is the ease in Turkey. :
where the old Eastern practice of 3
using but a single name continues
to be followed. Surnames wore not
introduced into England until after 3
the Conquest. The fashion of using l
two names came to us from France t
but for a time was confined to fami- a
lies of distinction, and extended 1
slowly over the country. One thing il
is said to~ have promoted its use.
Young ladies of aspiring tastes do- d
dined to marry gentlemen who had p
only a Christian name, such as John b
or Thomas, for they would nocessari
ly have still to be called by their I
own name, Mary, Elizabeth, or what
ever it was. Spinsters accordingly I
thought it to be a grand thing to y
form an alliance with a person pos- si
sessing the distinction of a family 0
name, by which they should ever 6i
after be called. i,
Curiously enough, so difficult is it S
to alter old usages, that until very h
lately surnames were scarcely used h
among the humbler classes of people p
in some parts of Great Britain re- e,
moto from centres of civilization. ci
In these places, a creditor would
enter the name of his debtor in his ir
books as John, the son of Thomas, f,
just as is seen in genealogies in the a
Old Testament. Only now, from b
improved communication with the t
outer world, have practices of this t
kind gone out of use. We can s
easily understand how the names e
ending in son, as Johnson, Thom- h
Bon, AfanRon (abbroviaziona %7f Mag It
nusson) originated ; and it is D
equally easy to conjecture how b,
names from professions, such as in
Smith, Miller or Cooper, came into ri
existence. It is equally obvious
that many family names are derived a
from the nature of the complexion lc
of individuals, as Black, Brown and j
White. At first sight, there is a T
mystery as regards the different y
ways in which certain names are i
spelled. Smith is sometimes writ- I
ton Smyth ; and in some instances S
Brown has an e at the end of it. o
Reid is spelled Roade, Reed and t(
Redo. We seo Long, Lang and a
Laing, all variations of one name; o
Strong, Strang and Strange ; Little a
and Liddle ; Home and Hume ; n
Chambers and Chalmers ; and so on u
with a host of surnames in daily v
use. This is explained by the in-- ,
different scholarship wvhich prevailed r
until even the middle of the n
eighteenth century. Names in old al
legal doeuments and in the inscrip- t1
tions on the blank leaves of family b
Bibles are written in all sorts of ti
ways. A man seldom wrote hlis b
name twice in succession the same I
way. Each member of a family fol'- 1
lowe~d tihe spelling suggested by his y
own fency, and added to or altered y
letters in his name with perfect in- I
difference. Eccentricities . of this u
kind are still far from uncommon in A
the signatures of imperfectly edn-- I
cated persons. There is, in fact, a a:
constant growvth of new names, c<
springing from ignorance and eare- I
lessness, though also in some cases I
from a sense of refinement. J
Perhaps there is a still more i,
vigorous growth of names from I
foundlings. Driven to their wits'
end to invent names for the anony.. n
mous inlfanlts thrown on their a
bounty, parish authorities are apt a
to cut the matter short by con-- i,
forring names that are suggested by a
the localities wvhero the poor chil.. f,
dren were picked up. A child a
found at a door will be called Door, s
and so on with Street, Place, Steps, a
Basket, Turnstile, or anything else. n
Hundreds of droll names are said to
have begun in this way. Possibly
it was from such origin as tis that 0
a respectable citizen of Dublin, e*
nmentioned by Cosmo Innes in his 8
small book on Surnames, derived P
the name of Halfpenny. Mr. Half- "
penny, it is stated "throve in trade, i
and his children prevailed on him ~
in his latter years to change the
name, which they thought undigni,. t<
tied; and this he (lid chiefly by drop. o
ping the last syllable. He died and e
was buried as Mr. Halpon. The
fortune of the family did not recode,
Ind the son of our citizen thought
proper to renounce retail dealing,
and at the same time looked about
or a euphonious change of namo.

Many of the most notable names
England and Scotl.nd are derived
om the norman conquest. These
re commonly derived from herita

lough altered, bear a certain aris..
)cratic air. The changes are con
.icuous. The prefex de has been

ave been vulgarized ; as Do Vesci

e Vero into Weir. Do Montalt has
como Mowart, Do Montfichet sinks
to Mushot, Do Moravie into Mur
y, and Grosseteto into Grosart.
Many French names have been
Itered into their English equiva
nts. L'Oiseau became Bird; Lo

acroix, Cross ; Tonnelior, Cooper ;

ame was Lefevre. Many names
'ere strangely altered in their con
3rsion from French into English.
olifemme was freely translated into
retyman ; Momerie became Mum
ecry, a common name at Dover ;
id Planche became Plank, of which
1ero are still instances at Cantor--'
