People named after colors.

Postby Perry Lassiter » Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:24 pm

Surnames mostly evolved logically: John's son to Johnson, and Joe the blacksmith to Joe Smith. But whence come the last names that are also colors? White, Black, Green, Redd, Brown, an d any others that may come to mind? Anyone do research on these?
