    Another nifty idea, but this mainly applies to those with European or non us last names, is what does your last name mean. Obviously you don't have to post your last name or anything.

    I don't remember how i know this stuff or when i learned all these things (well only 2 come to mind) but its pretty neat to know.

    I have a pair of cufflinks that have been passed down 4+ generations with the first letter of my last name on it (it looks really cool), does that count?

    I don't know.....but seeing as my family is from West Virginia, the crest is likely something like a burnt-out car sitting in front of a gutted house in an environment of overgrown weeds.

    OK, I looked up my family crest......apparently it's NOT a burnt-out car sitting in front of a gutted house in an environment of overgrown weeds.

    It's actually pretty cool.

    I blacked out my last name because I HATE my last name.

    [​IMG] I hope you're not talking about me with the crown on top. That's the symbol of Canadian military. I consider the Army my second family. Therefore this is my family Crest.
