    That's true. It's always interesting how German names often mutate in the USA. Eisenhauer mutating to Eisenhower or Huber to Hoover are rather harmless examples. I believe for example that the name of that White House Jew Eagleburger is derived most likely from "Igelburger", because there exists a town Igelburg east of Vienna, now located in Hungary, and the pronunciation would be exactly that. "Igel" however means literally translated "hedgehog" (though probably the name of the town hasn't got anything to do with a hedgehog)... "Eagleburger", hahaha...

    Dead-er-line comes closest.

    Hmmm... according to this Eagleburger isn't Jewish:

    http://www.forward.com/issues/2001/01.11.16/news2.html

    27-year veteran of the State Department who has been often mistaken for a Jew because of his last name and devotion to Israel, Mr. Eagleburger said the attack from Rep. Henry Waxman hit him especially hard. [...]

    Born in Milwaukee in 1930 to Presbyterian parents, Mr. Eagleburger received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Wisconsin and served as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army in the 1950s.

    So he is basically named after roadkill pressed between two pieces of white polystyrene bread?

    An Eagleburger may be indeed more appetising than an Igelburger.

    I wouldn't be surprized if McDonald's would offer a complete such bird between zwei lappige Brötchenhälften. Wouldn't that after all be an adequate breakfast meal to the whole barrels of Coca Cola you get there. I'm lovin' it.

    I hate my name because of people misspelling, mispronouncing, and making jokes about it. It is not a 'typical American' name so people usually ask what ethnicity it is, etc. "Belgium? Where is that?" Annoying. :eyes

    What I want to know is, do people still carry Sicilian last names?

    Post Re: How does one change their first,last name,etc. in the United States?

    I have no intention of ever changing my surname, but I was just curious.

    If you learned that you had been given a surname, other than your genetic forfathers, and you learned what your surname SHOULD be, would you change it.

    My surname is Ferguson, my father's father was adopted. He was born a Riggs.

    I personally like Ferguson much better than the name I should have.

    going a tad off topic here, and if it should be split, then split it. I intend to keep my surname even if I get married. I also wish for any daughters that I may have to carry my surname as well. So, then should I change it, or make Ferguson a second middle name?...hmm OR since I wish to do the maternal and paternal surnames, use Julian - my mother's mother's mother's name.

    Post Re: How does one change their first,last name,etc. in the United States?

    In Australia, at least in the past, you could adopt any names you wanted. There was a legal document called a Deed Poll which was a way of changing your names acceptable to Public Authorities. Marriage certificates could be used to change names. There is no compulsion in Australia to name children after their male parent though it is the custom. I think the ancestoral connection of Surnames is overdone because of the large number of adoptions, acquisition of step parents names, marriage customary changes for women and the simple fact that even in the days of no contraception and the frowning of sex outside of marriage, the rate of extranuptial children was about 8%. A wise child knows its own father was an old expression. Anyway how important is a name like Smith, Jones and Brown or names like Baker, Cook and Butcher in working out genetic relatedness among their bearers?

    I think it is everyone's right to choose whatever name they want. The problem of course is proving one's identity.
