Fixed family names were adopted in Wales from the 15th century onwards. Until this point, the Welsh had a patronymic naming system.
Patronymic names changed from generation to generation, with a person's baptismal name being linked by ap, ab (son of) or ferch/verch (daughter of) to the father's baptismal name to perhaps the seventh generation.[1] For example, Evan son of Thomas would be known as Evan (ap) Thomas; Evan's son, John would be John (ab) Evan; John's son Rees would be Rees (ap) John; and David's son, James, would be James (ap) David.
NOTE: Fitz (pronounced "fits") is a prefix in patronymic surnames of Anglo-Norman origin, that is to say originating in the 11th century. The word is a Norman French noun meaning "son of", from Latin filius (son), plus genitive case of the father's forename.[1]Whilst Fitz is now the standard form used by modern historians the word appears in ancient documents with various spellings such as fiz, filz, etc. The word has developed in modern French to fils de, with which it is thus cognate.
