About the N/n surname


Nomen nescio, abbreviated to N.N., is used to signify an anonymous or non-specific person. From Latin nomen, name, and nescire, not to know, be ignorant of. Together, I do not know the name.

Genealogists often use the abbreviation to signify an unknown or partially unknown name (such as N.N. Jones).
