By the time of the 1900 Norwegian Census, Christopher Olai and his daughter Pernille had adopted the farm name for their surnames as per trending custom. The change to a fixed family last name started in the early 1800’s and was widespread by about 1900. The use of a fixed surname was made compulsory by law in Norway in 1923. As a result of this change, many began using their current patronymic name; others chose for example their farm name as their permanent family name and thus the name — Strombotne.
