Every once in a while, I encounter a question in the close queue that asks for the origin of a surname and which has been voted to close
[…] as off-topic because it should be asked on genealogy.stackexchange. It asks for the origin of a name.
The latest question of this kind is this one and you can find some other, unclosed questions under person-names. We never actually migrated a question to Genealogy (link needs 2 k reputation), but such questions seem to be on-topic on Genealogy, though apparently not that well-received.
Should we consider such questions off-topic in general (or only some of them)?
