A fascinating and humorous lecture will shed light on the subject, answer these questions and many others:
  • What do you know about your surname? Are you sure? Perhaps what you know is "not so accurate"
  • the lecture will shed light on the subject and reveal:
  • How long have surnames exist?
  • How were they given? 
  • What characterizes them?
  • What changes have the last names undergone and when?
