What Does Your Last Name Mean


7 pm

Amana Heritage Museum Auditorium

What does your last name mean?

Do you know that your last name has a specific meaning? Do you know how and when your family got this name? Your last name can talk. It can tell about your forefathers, their geographical or local origin, their profession, sometimes even about their character.

Lothar Beyer will talk about the origin and meaning of German last names using Amana names as examples, from Ackermann to Leichsenring, from Moershel to Zuber and many others in between.
