About the Norman surname

Balázs Déri thinks :

Ancestor of normans of Norge is A'an-Nawar-Ge-Ma from the tribe of A-Man-Nesh-Sha-Ha,son of E-Shem-Awa-Der-Ga or A-Sham-Mawad-Ar-Ga of the Hansa confoederation.

As one of his brothers was A'ag-Hawan-Na it is possible that they are Magor (Magewar) and Hunor considered to be ancestors of some modyors (magyars) knowing also that Hungarians (hun'g-nu) came from near the North Pole,as chro nicle says.

They,like all their fellowmen spoke eskimaw dialects widespread in the northern part of the Holy Land and they may be related as well to nurage of Sardinia and perhaps to nuragash - meaning nurage from Asia - bushmans.

Samodi nation now among samoeds and manshi in Ugra may also belong here.

Jews and christians call them Aniam,Manassheh and Shemida.
