Re: Why Would Patronyms be Used Well After Formal Last Names Were Required?: Michalowicz vs. Leurie #names

Jill Whitehead

Quite a few members of my family reverted back to patronymic names in the UK after having been given surnames they did not like in the old country. Some who went from UK to US, or direct from old country to USA also did the same. It is not uncommon. I also have examples of both the given surname and the patronymic being used at the same time.
