One such thing is dating an individual who shares our last name, as in our minds everyone who bears our family name is related in some way, shape or form. But they say love has no bounds; when it comes, it comes, and even if you’ve sworn against doing it, you may find yourself falling for someone with the same surname.

Friday, April 20, Some people believe that dating someone with the same last name is a no-no, as that person could be a distant or even close relative. Would you risk it anyway? I couldn’t, but a very close friend of mine actually married someone with the same name as hers. I would fear it because chances are, you could be related and that for me would kill any chemistry between me and the person. I know of people with the same last name who are married and they are not related.

The modern Thai name is a 20th century innovation. For centuries, inhabitants of Siam, now Thailand, did not have surnames. Thais identified themselves by referring to their parents given names or the place they resided. The Siamese government started recording data on Siamese citizens during the reign of King Rama V — The data recorded was minimal: birth date, date of death, household members.

It was difficult to distinguish between the king’s subjects as many shared the same name. In , two years after the Western-educated Rama VI ascended to the throne, he declared that a birth, death, and marriage registration system would be instituted in Siam. Everyone had to bear a surname to identify themselves properly. In , the first Surname Act was promulgated. Thai names follow the Western European pattern of given name family name.

This differs from the family-name-first patterns of Cambodia , Vietnam , and East Asia.

Q: For months now, I have been inundated with mail addressed to a woman with the same last name as me, but a different first name, although it starts with a J, just like my name.
