Names that refer to the mother are called metronymic names, the name of the mother is rarely part of a surname. 2. 5 examples of prefixes and suffixes used to indicate patronymic names are, Mc, like McDonald. Mc means son of. O, means grandson of, so in the example of O’Connor, it means grandson of Connor. A third example is Fitz, an example of Fits would be Fitzgerald. Fits means child of. Kin is a suffix, an example is Wilkins which would mean little William. The fifth example son a suffix, an example is Johnson.3. Nicknames are usually given to distinguish physical traits and were just adopted as their names.4. Examples of surnames that were a result of nicknames are, Stout, Armstrong, Lack-land, Sterne, and Long. 5. Not all occupational names were given literally the occupation of the person given the name, like banker is not an occupational name at all it means dweller on hillside.6. An occupational name that doesn’t refer to the name thing today as it did in medieval times is hacker. In medieval times hacker meant maker of hoes. In more current times hacker usually refers to a computer programmer who breaks in to a system illegally.7. Ornamental names were acquired when someone without a surname suddenly came to need of one. 8. Five examples of place or location names are, Van Gelder, Cullen, Dunlop, Atwood, Middleton.
