|Do British surnames have meanings?
I’ve heard about many interesting English names in my dictionary’s appendix. But there’s nothing about English surnames. I’ve been looking for such a thing for a long time. Now I’d like to ask you where English surnames come from and what do they mean?
We often talk about English first names and what they mean here at BBC Learning English, but what about people's family names or surnames? What are the most popular ones and what do they mean?
John Escolme and Feifei Feng take a closer look at surnames in this week's Ask About Britain programme.
