108 Source: naming practicesby John Fíllesdalpatùroùnyùmic [noun, late Latin patronymicum from patr- (father) + onyma (name)]:a name derived from that of the father or a paternal ancestor usually by the addition of an affix. (Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary c 1994 Merriam Webster, inc.)My great grandfather, Daniel Rasmus Jonson, was born on the Fíllesdal farm in Nordfjord, Norway, on March 31, 1869. According to the patronymic naming system which was being used in Norway at the time, he was called Jonson because his father'sname was Jon. Under the patronymic naming system, sons of Jon were called 'Jonson' -- Jon's son, while daughters of Jon were called 'Jonsdatter' -- Jon's daughter. These patronymic names, however, were not part of the child's baptized name, indeedthe baptized name consisted only of a first name, such as Daniel, and sometimes a middle name, such as Rasmus. Thus, in the church records for my great grandfather it says in the column called Barnet's fulle navn (The child's full name): 'DanielRasmus'. The patronymic name was added in day to day interactions because there could be several persons named Daniel Rasmus in a community. Referring to someone as Daniel Rasmus Jonson helped to clarify that it was Daniel Rasmus, the son of Jon,that you were talking about, and not Daniel Rasmus, the son of Ole. Unfortunately, the first name followed by the patronymic name was not always sufficient to identify a person: there could be several persons in a community with the name Daniel Rasmus Jonson. To avoid any confusion, rural Norwegians wouldtherefore add the name of the farm where the person was living -- not as a name, in the modern sense of the word, but as an address or identifier. My great grandfather was therefore known as Daniel Rasmus Jonson Fí a small, rural community, this naming practice made a great deal of sense. My great grandfather was known by everybody in his community -- 'There goes Daniel Rasmus, the son of Jon, who lives on the Fíllesdal farm.' As an aside, I shouldmention that the patronymic naming system was not unique to Norway, or to Scandinavian countries for that matter. The system was also used in such countries as Holland. For those of us who are searching for Norwegian ancestors, the fact that a patronymic naming system was used in Norway up until about 1900 poses certain problems that I want to address in this article. The first point to keep in mind is that whileour ancestors may have added a farm name to their name, the farm name was not used as a surname, but rather as an address. As an example, we can look at Daniel Rasmus Jonson's father, Jon Jonson, my great great grandfather. He was born and raisedon the Hanebrekke farm in Nordfjord, and he was therefore called Jon Jonson Hanebrekke. As an adult, however, he moved to the Fíllesdal farm and was thereafter known as Jon Jonson Fíllesdal.........Source: to about 1850 all of the Scandinavian countries used a form of patronymics. The given name of a father was used as a surname for each of the children. The son's used the father's given name and a suffix that meant 'son' and the daughter'sused the father's given name and a suffix meaning 'daughter'. Following are examples from the four largest of the Scandinavian countries:Denmark- Norway Sweden-Finland Lars Andersen (father) Hans Larsen (son)Anna Larsdatter (daughter)Anders Hansen (grandson)Maren Hansdatter (granddaughter)Olof Svensen (father) Mons Olofsson (son)Stina Olofsdotter (daughter)Sven Monsson (grandson)Katharine Monsdotter (granddaughter)From about 1860-1904 the naming customs in each of these countries was changing from this system of patronymics that was used for hundreds of years to the type of system used in the rest of Europe and America where the surname was passed fromfather to son. This shift in naming patterns first took place in the cities and took place last in the rural countryside villages. During this period of change you will find several possibilities for surnames: A person could use the patronymicname they were born with for a family surname and pass it on to all their children. A person could take their father's patronymic name and use it for a surname. A person could take an entirely different name such as a place name or a name they liked and begin using it from then on as their surname. Because this is the same time period many Scandinavians emigrated to America, the first generation on either side of the ocean can be particularly difficult to research. Many Scandinavian records will therefore have a first name index rather thana surname index. in a single family three or four brothers often took entirely different surnames when they got to America.Scandinavians also had some general naming customs they followed to greater or lesser extent for given names. They would often name the first son after the father's father, the second son after the mother's father, the third son after the father,and other sons after uncles. Likewise the daughters were named for the grandmothers, mother, and aunts. If a spouse died and the husband or wife remarried, the next child of the same sex as the deceased spouse would be give their name. If aninfant died young, the next child with that sex was given the same name. This helped lead to the use of the same given names over and over again in each new generation. in many Norwegian and Danish examples you will find two or three children in afamily with the same given name who all lived. For example a father's probate record in Norway might list among the children three sons: Torvald the elder, Torvald the middle, and Torvald the youngest.Besides these customs each of the Scandinavian countries had their own unique naming customs. Someone who understands that soldiers in Sweden are given surnames often assume this is how names in Denmark came about. These type of generalizationjust do not work and cause a lot of confusion. You will need to refer to each of the unique paradigms listed below to understand surnames other than patronymics used in each of these countries. John
