: If you want to know what your first name is, try going to www.behindthename.com/nm/a.html

: If your name is the name of a city or place, there's a good chance that your name comes from that.

: If its a first name, particularly a male one, it is likely that it was the first name of an ancestor/ancestress of yours (if it's unusual your roots may be Latin, or another language).

: Sometimes surnames also derive from an ancestor's profession: Smith (blacksmith, ironsmith, etc), for instance.

: Finally, some names just come from nicknames and such. Sometimes people even changed their names because they liked an alternate one.

: There are tons of free sites on genealogy and family trees. Just look around a little.

: Happy searching
