We have added a vodpod to the Wilkes family blog. A vodpod allows you to share video on this blog. You will find it at the bottom of the navigation bar. It currently contains a single video featuring footage from the recent Floyd A. Wilkes family Christmas festivities and birthday celebration for Beverly Ann (Bird) Wilkes.

Family Name: Attie

January 26, 2008

I have a question concerning the family name “Attie”. This name belonged to my great grandfather. True? It is also the middle name of my father. Where does this name come from? How many “Atties” are there in the family?

It is my understanding this family name is a derivative of “Atlas” and that Atlas means “long suffering”. Is that true? How many people named Atlas or Attie are there in the family tree?
