I just listened to an interesting 30 min. program from the program, “Word of Mouth” on BBC Radio 4. The program was entitled “Surnames” and discussed English last names and their different origins. Although I didn’t agree with one interviewee who decided to ditch her last name altogether, I thought it interesting exploring the psychological effects names have on people. I thought this would be fun for a genealogy post! You can listen to this program for a limited time.
