Reply to: Fillister (not sure where this one comes from?) by Paul
I have never heard or read of this as a last name but there is a German word "Phillister" that might be related. It has various meanings: a) an old tribe which Palestine is named after b) a close-minded person when it comes to arts and literature / a Babbitt c) a man who used to be a member of a traditional German fraternity and has already graduated
