my name is Cassie, which means absolutely nothing, as far as I know.
But my horse's name is more interesting, lol, his name is Shea (shay) which is Gaelic and means hawk-like - fraceful, free, courageous.
hmm.. I couls also say what my surname means..
My name is Signý Pálsdóttir, and good luck to stalkers because that tells them virtually nothing, because we have "weird" naming traditions
My dad's name is Páll, and I'm his daughter (dóttir) Literally my last name means Small's daughter, Páll=small
If my dad's name was... Arngrímur, my name would be Signý Arngrímsdóttir.. So our last names don't really mean anything. I am related to 2 other Pálsdóttirs and they are my sisters.
It can be kinda confusing for foreigners when there is a family of 4 and none of them have the same last name.. e.g. Grandpa on one side is named Atli so the father is Atlason, grandpa on the other side is named Arnar so the mother is Arnarsdóttir, then they have the daughter Pétursdóttir because of the fathers name, and the son Pétursson
I know a few of these kinds of families
That is really fascinating Sis and you did a great job explaining it
