"West Kootenay Family Historian Surnames"


Just because your surname is spelled a certain way now, does not mean that it is the original spelling or the only way that the name was always spelled in every record. Always check for alternative spellings for your surname.

Here are some general rules.
Consonants that have similar sounds -C/K, G/J, T/D.
Double letters, single sound same -l/ll, t/tt, e/ee.
Silent letters such as K in Knight.
Additional letter or letters added for local dialect such as r in hallebone (Hallerbone).
Names sometimes altered because of different languages.
Translation from one language to another, Smith for Schmidt.
Initials or abbreviations -Jim or James.
Given names interchanged -John Edward Short instead of Edward John Short.
Nicknames- Bill for William, Polly for Mary, Ann for Nancy, Nan for Agnes.
Incorrect name given because of lapse of memory or different informant.
