LILLEGARD Family HistoryScandinavia did not in general adopt hereditary surnames until the 19th Century. These surnames fell into two groups, patronymic and ornamental, of which Lill(e)gard is an uncommon example of the latter. These "ornamentals" are built up of elements held dear by Scandinavians, and denoting natural phenomena and features of the landscape, and the flora and fauna of ancient mythology. Such surnames include Lil(j)eberg (Lily hill), Lie(j)egren (Lily branch), and Lillfeldt (Lily field), the prefix element "Lille" (Lily) being very popular.
