    The Oxford Dictionary of Family Names in Britain and Ireland

    .....
    Dictionary of 50,000 surnames and their origins published

    “What’s in a name?” Juliet asked as she and Romeo tried to puzzle their way around the troubling problem of their warring families. Well, plenty, the most detailed investigation into surnames in the UK and Ireland has found.

    A team of researchers has spent four years studying the meanings and origins of almost 50,000 surnames, from the most common to the highly obscure.

    Some names have been around for many centuries while other more recent arrivals are explained for the first time in the work, the
    Oxford Dictionary of Family Names in Britain and Ireland, which is published on Thursday.


    I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell - you see, I have friends in both places.

    Μια που αναφέρεται και η Ιουλιέτα, ας το συντροφεύει μια ηχώ από το παρελθόν, εκατόχρονη, για τα βαφτιστικά και μάλιστα τα γυναικεία (γιατί χωρίς γυναίκα, σόι δε γίνεται), που μόλις τώρα θυμήθηκα:

    Καλημέρα.
    Θεωρητικά, θεωρία και πράξη είναι το ίδιο πράγμα. Στην πράξη, όμως, διαφέρουν.
    When this you see, remember me and bear me in your mind, let all the world say what they may, speak of me as you find.
