Patronymic naming system
« on: Monday 20 June 05 10:43 BST (UK) »
I'm sure I posted something about this subject last year, can't find it now though.

Anyway, I came across this site, which gives a good explanation.

Link reported broken, see following replies.

I don't know if these provide the same information as D ap D's original link, but here a couple of other sites:

The link to the article posted in D ap D's original message is indeed a dead link, but the Wayback Machine still has the article in its archive:

Your post reminded of this from Gareth's Help Pages explaining that the IGI (in Wales) assumes names are patronymics.
