A little tidbit of historical information - it is not improbable that some families have adopted the sun on their coat of arms because of the play on the name... those surnames ending in SON or SEN, for example; Thompson, Johnson, Benson, Pearson, Carlson.
This sort of last name is a patronymic, a surname formed by adding SON to one’s father’s name, and it means SON OF so John Carlson, for example, was John, the son of Carl.
Impressed with history!
