Re: Latin name Fordo

Patrick Maloney

As far as I can tell, 'Fordo' is not a Latin word. RC entries wre often latinized, so 'Patricius' is simply 'Patrick'. I've not previously come across a surname being latinized, so normally I would suggest that 'Fordo' was the actual surname. It does look like an attempt to latinize, though, so I would hesitantly suggest that your chap's name was Patrick Ford.

It depends on the context, but it might mean "with young" (i.e. with children).

Can anybody tell me the English equivalent of Latin 'Fordo'.
Checked Google translate and it gives me Fordo.
