    My first name has Welsh origins, my surname is English.

    My middle name is frankly an embarrassment and I don't use it any more

    My first name is Nick, which is pretty much Greek. My last name is definitely English.

    Name: Alyson. It's Scottish and Irish origin = Allison is 'Noble kind; of the noble sort'.

    I do not know what category my name belongs to on the voting board, so I can't vote. :/

    First name Slavic (long story)
    Middle Norse
    Last Celtic

    But even though my first name is Slavic I still love it, its rare, but in Oz its considered female. In Eastern Europe its a male name though.

    My first and middle names are Celtic

    My surname orginated in Northern Germany, there are 3 place names that have my Surname--One in the Jutland, One in Ost Prussia and one beleive it or not in a Saxon Settlement in Scotland. It is an old Nordic name, it is somethimes used as a first name in Denmark and has versions of it in Norway and Sweeden.

    My family immigrated from the Rhineland. As the family legend goes the one swho converted to Protestantism stayed in the North, the ones who stayed Catholic moved to Westfallen and the Rhineland.
    Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
    Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
    Where is the hand on the harp-string, and the red fire glowing?
    They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
    The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.

    That is pretty common; my Surname had the umlauts removed, the von dropped and an English vowel combo put in. That was done by the US Government in an attempt to anglicize the Germans immigrating in to the US

    A good friend of mine had a similar thing happen to him. His surname was vonPaulus now it is just Paul
