My Boss' last name was Threefoot. However, he did not look like a Native American. When i asked him about it he told me what happened to his father. His father was German with a last name of Dreyfus. This was changed to Threefoot at ellis Island. The German word "Drey" means "Three" and "Fuss" means "Foot" so it makes sense.
