What's in a Name?
I was catching up on local news this week and I came across a naming phenomenon that struck me as a little odd. A couple just had a baby & the baby's last name is a combo of both their last names. (mom goes by her own last name) Strange. For example, let's say the Mom was "Jane Thomas" and the father was "John Newman" - the baby's last name would be "Thoman" This was an actual story. I am not making it up. How the heck are relatives in the 3000's going to trace back the family history on Ancestry.com after they come across this combo name? Good or bad idea?
