Christmas | Malecite, Mi’kmaq | Surname Anchor Posts

Index:  Indigenous, Metis & Mixed-Heritage Surname Anchor Posts

Each of these posts is dedicated to one surname that is carried by someone connected to indigenous, Metis or mixed-heritage people in Canada.  Please be aware that it’s a synthesis of the information I’ve collected in my personal research throughout the years and is by no means complete!


  • Surname lists: Surname Anchor Posts,  Wabanaki
  • Regions:  New Brunswick, Nova Scotia
  • Ethnicity:  Malecite, Mi’kmaq
  • Associated surnames: Bernard, Brooks, Cromwell, Dennis, Ducette / Doucette, Francis, Googoo, Gould, Herney, John,  Labove, Marshall, Martin, Nevins, Newell / Noel, Pictou, Richard, Robinson, Simon, Sylliboy.
  • Misc.:  Christmas is a rather rare surname in English – but it does exist. I have seen it said that the Mi’kmaq Christmas surname might be an anglicization of the French surname Noel.  Both Christmas and Noel  appear in the University of Cape Breton list of common Mi’kmaw surnames for Nova Scotia.
