  • We have put together this website for you, so take some time to look around.  We are delighted to share some images of our products here on our website and we've added a shopping cart, but because of the complexity of family origins, we also encourage you to contact us directly by phone at the number listed on our home page so we may navigate our database and library with you in real time, and choose the best Family name History and coat of arms for your family line. 


     Our extensive library allows us access to information that is not available online and we are happy to communicate with customers regarding coats of arms that they may personally associate with that differ from those we display.
     

     After many years in Florida, What's in a Name relocated to historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA, in July 2015. With access to The Historical Research Center's database, we provide a wealth of knowledge regarding the origin and meaning of your last name and the coats of arms that have been associated with it.  Our research began many years ago in Europe with just names from the British Isles, but we now have an extensive library of family name histories and coats of arms from around the world.
    Our research is based on onomastics and heraldry, and while we do provide historical references to bearers of your name, any relation to theses forebears is not implied.
