Most of the time I hear and see common surnames like Smith, Jones, Baker and Watson. Once in a while I come across an unusual name. Today I saw the name Flyingout. I am curious about how that name came to be. Baker most likely originated from someone who was a baker. Johnson, from some one who was the son of John. How would the name Flyingout have originated? “Honey, I’m going to try flying out of this tree.” I have a mental picture in a kite-like suit attempting flight because in my mind this name came before airplanes did.
