Do you know what your last name means?

I was just googling some family tree stuff and learned that my last name is derived from a Gaelic word for sleepyhead.

What does your last name mean?

  • I just looked mine up, and it gave a couple different origins, one meaning a person from a certain part of the city, another meaning a shepard, or one who tended sheep. LOL. I did learn that it's derived from Spain though, and not Mexico. Interesting.

  • I just checked 6 different sites and can't find my last name anywhere. It is very rare and it wasn't even issued until about 1850. So no I don't know the meaning of my last name.
