@The Landshark , “Moran (Irish: Ó Móráin) is a modern Irish surname and derived from membership of a medieval dynastic sept. The name means a descendant of Mórán. “Mor” in Gaelic translates as big or great and “an” as the prefix the. Morans were a respected sept of the Uí Fiachrach dynasty in the western counties of Mayo and Sligo. In Ireland, where the name descended from the Gaelic, it is generally pronounced /ˈmɒrən/ MORR-ən anglicised approximate of the Irish pronunciation.”

Unless you're Scandinavian. Then your names are a little less original. Your last name literally translates to Son/Daughter of whoever your last ancestor was when this was a custom, I.E a common one, Hanson literally means "Son of Han"
I understand why people wouldn’t want to give last names in a forum, but it is also funny all the people saying they don’t know where their name comes from, without giving the name. There is no way to tell if it makes sense they can’t figure it out or not
My husband's last name is Lines. What was his ancestors profession?
