||Re: origin of the name "Etrick" by Nanaea
Thanks for replying! The only clue I have EVER found is maybe in Scotland. There are Ettrick mountains, an Ettrick river, and some more geographical possibilities. However, there are TWO T's in Ettrick which my father and great uncle didn't put in their name. And I didn't see the name pop up until the family was in Harlan, Iowa, when they named my great uncle. I KNOW there must be a reason but darned if I can figure it out. It's driving me CRAZY! My father was the most important person in my life and he used to joke about being in the 3rd grade and the only one in his class who missed the word "trick!" So I don't think he knew why his uncle was named that. I've heard of Erick but not Etrick. Yet, my Dad was named that. Any help is welcomed!
