Dr. Jürgen Udolph: The origin of surnames

Many inquiries are concerning the origin and meaning of family names. Therefore as this month’s tip we chose the homepage of the linguist Dr. Jürgen Udolph.
He daily answers questions to familiy names in the broadcasting program “Radio Eins am Vormittag” which also can be received via Internet.
Dr. Udolph’s homepage is very instructive as it offers a lot of valuable bibliograhical references related to the field of onomatology. You can also find links to websites that show the occurence of familiy names in single countries.
