[JAMAICA] Looking for info. on surname Ximinies in Jamaica!
Hi, my name's Aliyah and for the past several years, I've been puzzling over the surname, "Ximinies." I'm not 100% sure as to who the surname came from, but my best guess is that it came from my 2nd great grandfather, since my 2nd great-grandmother from what I've been told was originally from Spain. So I'm quite sure that my 2nd great-grandfather gave my great-grandfather that surname and was of African origin. From the little bit of internet research that I've done on the surname, it's definitely not common. My grandmother, on the same side, did some research on it years ago, and somehow she came to the conclusion that the name might be of Greek origin. She may be right since most of the results that I found on the internet were mainly Facebook pages of people with that surname who live in Greece. I haven't been able to find much else beyond that, even when I've looked it up under Greek surnames, I haven't seen it. I'd just like to know if anyone has any kind of information on it, or may even have that surname themselves. If you do, please reply and let me know and I'll respond as soon as I can.
