Welsh habit of naming themselves after their father. Indeed, in November 2006, a new world record was established for a gathering of the most people with the same surname when 1,224 people called Jones gathered at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. In Scotland, Donald is very common.
Male first names usually end in -os, -as or -is – for instance, Pavlos, Andreas, Haris. There is a tradition that first-born sons are given the name of the father’s father, and first-born daughters are given the name of the mother’s mother. In Greece, one given name is the norm and therefore middle names are rare. Papadopoulou would literally mean “of Papadopoulos”. Less common, irregular endings, still drop the -s for females.
