In Reply to: Same Surname, Different Endings! Why? posted by marie on September 01, 2000 at 06:32:34:
I am sorry this message was so confusing to some of you who replied; however, I would like to thank you all for your efforts anyway. I did receive a very thorough and extensive explanation from June at the Hellenes-Diaspora mailing list. I am no longer in the dark about greek names and the areas one may have originated in greece.
: Can anyone explain the meaning of the different endings to the same name? I realize that the ending denotes the area of greece that the family originated; however, my question is are all related even if the ending is different. For example, THEODORE, THEODOROS,THEODOROU, THEODORAKIS, THEODOROPOLOUS, THEODORATOS,etc.?
: If you know, please let me know. It's driving me crazy!
