Thread Name: Weird last names
Subject: RE: Weird last names
I was a Polakow - In 1960-odd my parents changed it by deed poll. Could have been Polson or Poldark but 'Shaw' seemed much more good Lancashire name hence my moniker:-) We are the only ones in England so you don't get much odder. There are some unrelated ones on the US. I have emailed a couple but never had a response.
