Find the meaning of your surname:

We’re at these Christmas events, shows and fairs.


Looking for Christmas events? You may be aware that Hall of Names surname histories are sold at many top historic attractions. But did you know you can also visit us at shows and Christmas events? Our blog page has many articles about the fantastic locations where our retailers sell our coats of arms scrolls. However, many of our retailers do not have a permanent base. Instead, they sell our lovely range of personalised gifts at shows and events across the UK.


For example, have you seen our events page? It shows you exactly where our retailers are. It also lists the events and shows that are going to take place in the forthcoming weeks and months. Plus…the festive season is drawing closer! This  means that our independent retailers will be attending a wide variety of shows, events, fairs and markets. As a matter of fact, some of these events are the most popular in the country! But what will you find when you visit Hall of Names at one of these events?


What will you be able to buy?


You will be able to buy a highly distinctive personalised gift, that will be cherished for years to come! Plus, you’ll get the chance to talk to our retailers direct, all about your surname and its origins. These include spelling variations, and early lands owned. Also, migration to the new world and even if there were passengers on board the Titanic! Each one of our retailers is trained and highly knowledgeable. Therefore, you’ll be able to ask questions about your own name and its origins. Retailers will be able to advise you on which products will best suit your personal needs. They are a friendly bunch so come along and find out all about your surname!
