Re: Zorn Name- Information on its origin

My family oral history has it that our name was Zorn, which means "wild" in German. It was later changed to Trux, which is latin for "wild, fierce, ferocious". English word "truculent" comes from the root word trux.

Our family was in Saxony when we had the Zorn name.
