Sonnichsen Family

  Quick Overview || Links


The name Sönnichsen is a patronymic meaning "son of Söncke"; an earlier form of the name was Söncksen. Since patronymics usually change every generation, instead of presenting a separate page for each name, I decided to follow the direct male line.

My thanks to my Sonnichsen cousins, past and present, who have generously shared information with me.

For more on the patronymic naming system, check under Names on the Schleswig-Holstein Links page, or read my personal Observations.
