Cuthbertson not Carperson

August 27, 2009

I have lost track of the number of variations I’ve encountered of my surname. Just a few:

  • Cupperson
  • Custards
  • Custardson
  • Cusperson
  • Cutherbertson
  • …and the most imaginative – Carperson.

I think there’s a lot to be said for not naming your child with a first name that has ridiculous spelling. They’ll spend their life spelling it over the phone.

I have found the origin of Cuthbertson.
