Where do they come up with the meanings of peoples names?

I would like the history on determining what the meaning of a name is.


Answer by  Darry (3853)

Generally most name meanings come from the root words that create the name. For example Abban is an Irish name meaning little abbot which comes from Abb meaning abbot.


Answer by  Mary (2095)

The meanings of names are based off of the origin of the word or the root words combined to make the word. This can include multiple languages.
