Namemas: Peverell

We are one day away from Namemas ending! As much work as this series is it is still sad to me to have it ending. Today's name is a unique boy name that dates back to the Norman Conquest times. If you like surname as first names you might just like this name!



Harry Potter 
The Peverell family is family of 3 brothers in Harry Potter. They are said to have been the original masters of the Deathly Hallows. No male Peverells descendants came from those 3 brothers only female descendants. From those female descendants many families came. Harry Potter is in the family line. I am not a huge Harry Potter fan and I'm sure there is someone out there that can explain it better.

Places and Knights and Surnames
The name is more often seen as a surname than a first name. It has not been used as first name status as far as my research has taken me. Peverell is a neighborhood in Plymouth in England. William Peverel was a Norman knight who was granted land following the Norman Conquest. On that land he built 162 manors and castles. History says that William Peverel was the illegitimate son of William the Conqueror.

Christmas Association
On the eleventh day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:

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

Peverell means piper in French. I decided not to go with the obvious choice of Piper for today's name post. Plus I have featured a lot of girl names this year and wanted to throw in a boy name toward the end of this Namemas.
