What’s in a name? Ever wondered about the origins of a surname? Surname Database contains details about the origins of over 49,000 surnames.

Search within the app for a surname and if our researchers have investigated that name we will return the details. The names you search for are stored in the app for quick access later on. Why not check out your own surname, look up a friend's name or investigate your favourite celebrities? Or if you just want to browse, check out the frequently updated popular and topical names highlighted on the start screen.

A great little app if you are researching your family tree and want to look into the details of the surnames of your ancestors. Also great fun at a dinner party, business networking or even an ice breaker on a first date!

    Always crashes! Don't waste your 5 dollars!

  • Problems

    by SeetSang

    Great concept, way too few names! No help to me in genealogy if 75% of the surnames I enter generate an "Oops!" (And most all my family names are relatively common in Great Britain.)

  • Wasted my money

    by Jw279

    If the name you search isn't from great Britain, you get nothing... Don't waste your money like I did!

    I have to agree ~ the developer needs to add the surnames for the searches that aren't found ~ especially for the people who paid for this app! 
