SOLOMON Family History

Recorded in many forms as shown below, this ancient name, widespread in most European countries, is almost certainly of Ashkenazic origin. It derives from the Hebrew male given name "Shelomo", a derivative of "shalom", meaning peace. Salomon was the popular medieval form used in the Vulgate, the 4th Century version of the Bible. Solomon is the form used in the Geneva Bible and the Authorized Version. The personal name was widespread among Christians in the Middle Ages, and was also used as a nickname for a particularly wise man or for someone who had played the part of King Solomon in a miracle play.
