    Age 4

    A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.

    Welsh: Anglicized form of Welsh ap Ynyr ‘son of Ynyr’, a common medieval personal name derived from Latin Honorius with fused patronymic marker (a)p, normally voiced before a vowel.

    German (also Bönner): from a short form of the ancient Germanic personal name Bonhard, formed with the element bon ‘request, petition’ (compare Latin bonus). This surname is also found in Sweden.
