Name Suffix

There is an even richer variety of suffixes that may be added to basic names. The suffix can be a separate word, as is the case with most prefixes, or combined with a root name. In the following lists, if the suffix begins with a lower case letter, then it is combined with a root name. If the suffix in my list begins with an upper case letter, then it is a separate word following the root name.
