Which Came First: The Family Name or the Family Business?

AmigoneHome

Back when the British were first settling in North America, many people referred to each other by their first name followed by the name of their occupation.  So if John were a blacksmith, he may have been called John Smith and so on.  Many last names such as Carpenter, Taylor, Brewer and Mason came about this way.

In my hometown of Orchard Park, NY, the Amigone’s and their funeral home family business take this to a whole new level.

    I love the Amigones. They seem to have a bit of a “did the chicken or egg come first” thing going on. Did their name influence their decision to go into the funeral home business, or did they change their name to suit the business they were already in?

    Must be hard not to “bring work home!”

  • David Tee

    Whoa.. That’s very fitting name for a funeral parlor…
