4452Re: The meaning of the firstname "Cow"
- Jul 18, 2007Thanks Margie. In my ancestors instance, I'm sure it was NOT a T-
Name. He was born and christened in Peterhead as "Cow CORDINER" and
was married and died as "Cow CORDINER" in Aberdeen. No other names
appear on any of these certificates. I can trace most of my
relatives back to the Boddam, Peterhead, Fraserburgh, and more
recently Aberdeen areas of Scotland. The name appears seven times as
a "stand alone firstname". My wifes ancestors seem to have lived
within a 30 mile radius of Aberdeen and two of them also have
the "Cow" firstname.

instead of his first name. I can't even remember his first name as he
was always known as Cow Noble.
