23046Re: Naamgewing in Friesland/Nederland
- Nov 10, 2004Beste Edward,
Over the years I have come across situations in which a child is
given a name that does not include a patronymic. I have seen them in
the 1700's and 1800's. The situations were somewhat unique in that
the son was named after an uncle that had recently died and (in the
1700's) the family had a surname that was generally used. There were
some other occasions, all in the same family, where the children of a
dominie were given names that were completely outside of the normal
naming conventions. I assumed that the father probably came from
another province other than Friesland, where the convention was not
as strictly adhered to. May experience over thousands of names is
that the use of patronymics was nearly universal in Friesland and
that the naming convention for the first two sons and first two
daughters was widely adhered to.
Thanks. Met vriendelijke groeten.
