New format of Surname Saturday here on Discovering Latvian Roots – if you want surname meanings, go check out the Facebook and Twitter pages, here on the blog it will be a summary of what’s new on the Latvian Surname Project, as funded by my supporters on Patreon!
Extra this week, since last week I didn’t get to post because of my computer meltdown!
New this week!
Parishes added – Ābeļi, Aiztere, Dzērve, Gostiņi, Liepna, Pededze, Zante
Names added – Baltalksnis, Bārenītis, Burbulis, Grantiņš, Kāpostiņš, Karlovičs, Ķesteris, Melngalvis, Oga, Puķe, Sīpoliņš
… and over 50 other names have been updated to reflect their presence in more parishes!
The Surname Project currently includes 1332 surnames from 466 parishes, towns and cities. Many parishes only have a few names listed so far, but I’m working every day to add more for each parish!
