Franklin Co., TN Sub7 - Nicknames: "A knowledge of the various nicknames can help us better identify our ancestors. I have NOT included some of the more OBVIOUS ones in this list. Remember, there can be an Eliza and an Elizabeth in the same family. Also, it is not uncommon to find two children with the same name. Sometimes a child dies and another child is given their name. There may also be a child with the same name by the different wives. Some nicknames may be clues to a name by which the person was not commonly known. Some of the names might have been given at birth and are not nicknames. PLEASE DO NOT SEND 'pet names'. I do not create nicknames for anyone.(See Naming Traditions at the bottom of this list)."


Naming Patterns and Customs - Genealogy Tip of the Day - About Genealogy: "People of all countries tend to name children after other family members, often using an unwritten, but traditional formula. In Ireland, as in many other countries, the first-born son was generally named after the paternal grandfather, and the first daughter after the maternal grandmother. This was an especially common practice during the 19th century and earlier. Surnames in some Scandinavian countries are indicative of a child's parentage - the Swedish surname Johannson, for example, indicates the 'son of Johann.' Surname endings can even indicate the country of origin. The -son ending mentioned above is typically Swedish, while -sen (Jensen) is more likely to be Danish or Norwegian."
