Romance of Names 1914
1914. The author's aim in this book was to steer a clear course between a too learned and a too superficial treatment, and rather to show how surnames are formed, than to adduce innumerable examples which the reader should be able to solve for himself. The subject matter is divided into a number of rather short chapters, dealing with the various classes and subdivision into which surnames fall; but the natural association which exists between names often prevailed over rigid classification.
