About Us

Have you ever wanted to know the origins of your last name, but don’t know where to start? Have you been looking for your family’s coat of arms?

The Name Tree can help you with your search. We have the largest database of names in the world and specialize in the reproduction and design of family crests, also known as heraldry.  

Owners Peter and Sharon Lootsma are celebrating their 25th year in 2019 and throughout the years, have been providing unique ways to proudly display a family’s heritage and origins.  Among The Name Tree’s unique product lines are “onomastics” the study of the origin and history of family names. Their database includes the evolution of the name, original meaning, original spelling and variations, where they first appeared on a census roll or church record.
