When searching surname origins - type Surname:Sambin or Samblin:Surname (origins; family crest etc) into any search bar such as google.

Example below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:DavidOaks/sandbox

"  In linguistic change caused by folk etymology, the form of a word changes so that it better matches its popular rationalisation. For example:-

Old English sam-blind ("semi-blind" or "half-blind") became sand-blind (as if "blinded by the sand") when people were no longer able to make sense of the element sam ("half")."
