Where did my unusual middle name come from?

Have you got an unusual middle name? Perhaps one that sounds more like a surname? Have you ever wondered where it came from, or why various members of your family also have it?

We often find that those names are a maiden surname from generations back to honour her father who may have been a local dignitary.

We can help you find those distant relatives, how they married into your family and why they were so important that their name survives today. Call us or email our enquiry line now and tell us what you want to know.
