Most of my coats have 2 arms.

My name is Cooper, which originated in France. Coopers were barrel makers, which is why we called our shop "The Barrel of Fun". (www.barreloffun.biz - just thought I'd get a quick advert in.)

I have! I have!

... really two or three options from wich decide depending on whom me or my grandpa asked!

Well, one coat depicts three helmets one above the other on red. BLorish speaking it seems that I come from a family well versed in Heavy Cavalry in ancient times.

Another one shows a morbidly ambiguous ensemble of towers, birds and hills; really evocative, from a Freudian point of view, but more correctly attributed to a family in Umbria with a sligthly different version of my surname:

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnocchi

The last one is a more anonymous pastiche of stripes and balls, red and white, if I remember well. Here and there, now and then a (minor) noble seems to have popped up, but I guess that could be said for the majority of Europeans. About the surname: Bernocchi could have come from the Longobard language (probabily the right guess) or from the German, in the Federico I "Barbarossa" era: it means "Bear Head" or something along these lines... way cool, my grandparents were for sure manly and wolly, yeppyyyyyy!....
