Namemas: Drummond

Happy last day of Namemas and Christmas Eve! I hope these last 11 days have brought you some interesting reads and some Christmas cheer. We're finishing off the countdown with a boys name with a cool nickname.



Places of Drummond 
There are many places bearing the name Drummond all around the world. One of the main roads in Niagara Falls is Drummond Road. There is a glacier named Drummond Glacier in Antarctica. Drummond is found many in Canada, Northern Ireland, and the United States in towns and villages.

The name isn't just used for locations. There is a castle in Perthshire, Scotland called Drummond Castle. The building has been around since the 14th century. Now a days it is known for its beautiful gardens.

Coal: The naughty Christmas Association 
Drummond Company is a coal mining company with operation in Alabama and Colombia. The company was founded in 1935 in Jasper, Alabama bu Heman Edward Drummond. By 2013 the company was inducted into the Alabama Engineering Hall of Fame. This coal company name is a perfect Christmas association!

Famous Drummonds
To my surprise there are quite a few famous Drummonds in the world! The most recent and famous is Ree Drummond, an American food blogger and chef with her own tv show and loads of other products. Although her name is used as a surname.

As a first name there is (John) Drummond Allison, an English WWII poet and Drummond Nicol Brown, an American baseball catcher in the 1910s. Drummond Hoyle Matthews is a British marine geologist and plate tectonics pioneer from the 1950s and 1960s. He was nicknamed Drum as well!

Christmas Association
On the twelfth day of Christmas

my true love sent to me:
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords a Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids a Milking
7 Swans a Swimming
6 Geese a Laying
5 Golden Rings
4 Calling Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Drummond is my pick for the last day for Namemas. The Drum nickname is what sold me on this name and other than the nickname there is hardly any music instrument connections. While doing research I found the coal company name and thought this is just perfect! I love these little Christmas association surprises! This name is preppy and old fashioned sounding. For all the parents wanting an unique surname first name this is the pick for them!
