You’ve heard of “John,” “Peter,” and “Mary.” But have you ever heard of “Fonzie?” What about “Cindy Lou Who?” These are just a few of the strange names that one syllable people go by. In this blog post, we will discuss 101 unusual uses for a name with only one syllable.
“Abercrombie” was used as a surname after the Scottish clan’s chief, meaning “son of Aircrom,” and its use began in Aberdeenshire. The Clan Chief was Malcolm-a-Birnie.
This name can also be spelled with double R’s like this – “Abaracrome.” However you spell it, it means “Son or daughter of Barney”. It originated around 1190 AD when there were two different spelling variations for one syllable names starting off with ‘B’. One form had three consonants before the vowel sound (Barbra) while the other has only two consonants before that same vowel sound but then a double letter instead of a single consonant (Barracome).
There are many ways to use this unusual first name in sentences. For example, we could say “Abarcrome is someone I would be friends with.” or “I’m not sure what the meaning of this name is, but it sounds like a word that might describe Barney’s son.”
