    family name

    My maiden name was "Guess". I was born and lived in essex all my youth and i was the only "Guess" surname around. Everywhere i went people remarked on it. When i did my family tree, all my descendants come from leighton buzzard. Just out of interest i was wondering if there are thousands of "Guess" surnames floating around Leighton Buzzard that would be related to me from way back.

    I have a hunch you'll find more of them.

    I could only guess that you'll find more.

    Try the phone book.

    surname? guess. "just give me your surname"

    Guess What?

    As good as Chinese name "Hu" , pronounced "who?"
    "What is your name?"
    "me, Hu!"
    and family name "Wat" in many languages
    "What is your name?"
    "Wat!"

    Hadnt thought of that, its quite amusing what names we get saddled with. You do tend to think you're the only one with a funny name but there are loads of them. Never had any problems at school though, you'd think kids would be more cruel. All my teasing and jokes were as an adult, ive heard all the jokes a thousand times. I took my family tree back to the 1600's and name was originally spelt Gess, sounds foreign but they were all living in England.

    I used to teach a boy called Lee King and a girl called Jenny Taylor.oO
