About Us

House of Names.com

Swyrich Corporation

HouseofNames.com is a retail site for LastName history and Coats of Arms prints. HouseofNames.com is owned and operated by Swyrich Corporation, the industry leaders in LastName histories, Coats of Arms and heraldic clipart. All of the products sold by Houseofnames.com have been researched and created by Swyrich. Many years of research have resulted in a huge library of histories and Coats of Arms associated surnames from around the world. Our products are researched and written at our head office in Kingston, Canada. Research and revision is ongoing. We are proud of the authenticity and accuracy of our products and we stand behind them 100%.

We do not do genealogies of specific family branches. Our histories begin at the first recorded instance of a surname, then follow the surname and all its variations and branches through to the present day.

We do not "Grant" Coats of arms. All our coats of arms are associated with an individual who once bore the surname; generally the oldest known for the name.

We do offer historically interesting, visually pleasing products that have been satisfying our customers for over 25 years.

Our Mission

The House of Names.com web site offers safe, secure, easy to use Internet shopping, for a range of custom products, with excellent customer service.
