First Names

Discover the meaning of your name. First name histories are 3-4 paragraphs long (approximately 300 words--the longest, most detailed name histories we've ever seen!). They are printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper (your choice of design) on a laser printer so that they are archival safe and photo friendly. Each will arrive in a polypropylene page protector, they are suitable for framing or placing in a Book of Remembrance or Scrapbook. The first 1-2 paragraphs discuss the meaning of your name and why it became a name. The last paragraph or two tell you character traits that are associated with you because of your name. The first part is factual, the second is fiction, but it is remarkable how true these characteristics can be! First and Middle names count as two name histories, we want you to get as much information for your dollar as possible. If the names are used together, such as Mary Ann, then they are considered one name. We research and write each name ourselves, this is what we started out in the business world doing. Yes, if your name is made up we can do it--all names were made up at one time or another. If we have already researched and written your name it will go out in the next two days, if not, please allow 3-5 weeks for the name to be researched and written. On very rare occasions we just simply cannot find any information on a name. In these instances your money will be refunded in full. If you have any questions feel free to contact us at info@TracesEtc.com

Surnames (Last Names)

Discover the meaning of your name. Surname (last name) histories are 3-4 paragraphs long (approximately 230-310 words--the longest, most detailed name histories we've ever seen!). They are printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper (your choice of design) on a laser printer so that they are archival safe and photo friendly. Each will arrive in a polypropylene page protector, they are suitable for framing or placing in a Book of Remembrance or Scrapbook. Some of the things a surname history will tell you are: where your name originated (sometimes this can be several different countries!), why it became a surname, and what it means. You can purchase additional copies of the SAME surname for only $2.00 each--these make great gifts for family members. You will need to contact us to take advantage of this offer.
