(Dictionary of Names)


A fairly large group of English surnames is formed from first names and their derivatives and diminutives. This list includes some of the most common male names at the time surnames were becoming fixed in England, and their connected surnames. The ending '-man' implied 'servant of'. These names commonly used a short diminutive to produce Gillman, Jackman, Rickman and so on. Common diminutive endings for first names were '-cock', '-kin', '-et', '-in' and '-on' but few of these are still in use except in surname forms. Double diminutives such as Hodgekin (Roger) or Simcock (Simon) are also found in surnames. The '-mough' ending signified an in-law.
