the last name Perez means the rock in short phrases to explain it it means tough. Add-on by Ivette: The name Perez means "son of Pedro" (Peter). Just as the name Peter, Pedro comes from the word for "rock" (piedra) - thus you have the association with "tough." But actually, from what I understan…d, go back to when Jesus told Simon Peter that he would be the rock of his (Jesus') foundation (Christianity). In French, Pierre means both Peter and rock. Also, in Spanish, when a last name ends with -ez, it means "son of." It becomes very obvious as you translate such names into "son of so-and-so." For example: Rodriguez = son of Rodrigo, Gonzalez =...Gonzalo, Fernandez = Fernando, etc. Lopez is supposed to come from "lobo" which means "wolf." Vasquez (does not end rhyming with "squeeze!") = a person from the Basque region of Spain (Vasco in Spanish). But wait, there's more! These last names rhyme, since the accent is stressed on the next to last syllable. RodRIguez. GonZAlez, LOpez, VeLASquez, PER-ez Thus, Vasquez should not be pronounced "Vass-squeeze" and Perez is not "purr-EZZ" but PAIR-ezz. But American pronunciation has changed that. Oh, well. (MORE)

As a suffix, it means "of God". thus Jane Doe-El would be Jane Doe of God. This form shows a devotion to God. As a prefix, Jane Eldoe or Jane El Doe, it… would mean God or God of so the surname would mean God of Doe (I know that doesn't make sense but consider El Ibrahim - God of Abraham - that probably makes more sense but the prefix or standalone El means God or God of (whatever follows). Bey or bay does similarly exist in Islamic (less so in Judaic) names, as well as Turkish and many other societies. This is at it's basis a titular name, in many cases sort of like "Sir" to Western Europeans. Depending on the country of origin, it can simply mean "Sir" and title of respect. In others it identifies a particular caste, in others, it shows some ruling title (not the King, but maybe the King's treasurer or the like). In some cases, the use of "bey" is formal and you could depending on the usage see the name with or without the bey. Your John Doebey could be an exceptionally formal address of this person, but more commonly, they would just be John Doe. But again, this "bey" occurs in many cultures and you would have to know the specific culture in order to truly determine the fine points of usage and meaning. (MORE)

Recorded in several spelling forms including Good, Goode, Gudd, and Gudde, this is an early medieval English surname, but of pre 7th century Olde English origins. It has two possible origins. The first is from a nickname for a "good" person. This was someone who was pious and respected, although giv…en the robust Chaucerian humour of the medieval period, possibly the reverse! Derived from the ancient word "god" meaning good, there are several popular surnames that include "good" as the first element, including Goodbody and Goodfellow. The second source for the surname is from a medieval personal name, either "Goda", a man's name, or "Gode", a woman's, both deriving from the ancient "god". Early examples of the the surname recordings taken from the surviving registers of the diocese of Greater London are those of Henrie Goode and Elizabeth Harrison, who were married on July 14th 1555, at the church of St. Mildred Poultry in the city of London, and the christening of John, the son of Thomas Good, on November 23rd 1562, at Christchurch Greyfriars. Thomas Good, of the now "lost" village of Old Sarum near the city of Salisbury, in Wiltshire, was an early emigrant to the developing colonies of America. He left Southampton on the ship "Bevis" in May 1638, bound for Virgina. The first recorded spelling of the family name is believed to be that of Gilbert le Gode. This was dated 1213, in the "Curia Regis" rolls of the county of Berkshire, during the reign of King John of England, 1199 - 1216. Hope this helps, found on a Surname Database website :) (MORE)
