My father told me that everyone belonged to a village who shared the same name because they were like a family. I guess thats how ppl who aren't true family related are related in some way.
: A person's surname determines his/ her ancestors etc. So are
: people with same surnames related? I mean, why do people
: have the same surnames? Please enlighten me!!
