going flying today?

Most of the time I hear and see common surnames like Smith, Jones, Baker and Watson. Once in a while I come across an unusual name. Today I saw the name Flyingout. I am curious about how that name came to be. Baker most likely originated from someone who was a baker. Johnson, from some one who was the son of John. How would the name Flyingout have originated? “Honey, I’m going to try flying out of this tree.” I have a mental picture in a kite-like suit attempting flight because in my mind this name came before airplanes did.

This year, the OUMC fundraising efforts are being dedicated to the grandson of one of our fellow HCA employees, Chuck Abeyta, from the Denver office. Michael was 18 when he went into a diabetic coma in January of last year, and did not survive. Diabetes is more than an inconvenience. Please support JDRF with your donation.”
