Zitat zu Amish Names (der Horror für jeden Genealogen):
Almost all of the Amish today are direct descendants of the Amish immigrants of the eighteenth century, probably only five hundred in number. As marriage outside the church is forbidden, the Amish have intermarried to an amazing degree, until today there are only about thirty surnames among them. Indeed, most of them have one of a dozen surnames. There is a school in Lancaster County in which for the last ten years 95 to 100 per cent of the children, and the teacher as well, have been named Stoltzfus. Small wonder that they resort to almost every personal name in the Bible: Aaron, Abner, Abram, Amos, David, Elam, Enos, Isaac, Jacob, Jesse, Job, John, Levi, Mahlon, Milo, Moses, Naaman, Stephen, Urie. Even so, six or seven men in the same community may bear the same name. Since more than a name is needed to tell them apart, six Jacob Zooks may be known as Big Jake, Hickory Jake, Henner's Jake, Red Jake, Turkey Jake, and Smoketown Jake.
