These surnames come from patronymics. Patronymics as such weren't used in the Latvian language (the style was rather FirstName FathersName's son/daughter LastName), so the vast majority of patronymic-style surnames come from origins besides Latvian. Surnames that involve first name elements, but are not in a patronymic style, have their own section.
