Rock Kings And Queens: Gene

Gene

Name origin: Greek

Name meaning: Well-born

Simmons

Name origin: English (southern)

Name meaning: patronymic either from the personal nameSimon (see Simon) or, as Reaney and Wilson suggest, from the medieval personal name Simund (composed of Old Norsesig ‘victory’ + mundr ‘protection’), which after the Norman Conquest was taken as an equivalent Simon, with the result that the two names became confused.
