62 Last Name Meanings

(YouTube link)

Do you know where your last name comes from, or what it originally meant? In this week’s mental_floss List Show, host John Green runs down the origins and meanings of 62 relatively common surnames. Mine isn’t in there. Neither are any of my previous last names, nor any of my pseudonyms. Bummer.
