PETRUS - Latin form of Peter .

ALFONSUS - Alternate spelling of Alphonsus .

ALFRITZ - Possibly a combining form of Al and Fritz .

FAHMI - masculine Arabic name meaning "understanding".

LAMBEY - English surname literally meaning "lamb", derived from the nickname for a meek, inoffensive person. It could also denote someone who occupationally tended lambs and sheep. Or it could indicate that the person came from a house bearing the sign of a paschal lamb. Surnames taken from housesigns were more common in Germany, though, than in England.
