What's In A Surname

Traveling rural roads in northeastern Wisconsin, came across this road sign. The road is named for a local farmer.

When the king ordered his subjects several centuries ago to select a surname, this would certainly be an unusual selection for a surname. Or maybe not. Perhaps he raised donkeys.


  1. Or it's a name from another language and means something entirely different. Amusing sign.

  2. There is a family in South Dakota with this name. They pronounce it Ozman. I guess it mostly works for them. I can imagine the children are teased, and maybe even the adults.
