Hi, new here and I was just wondering if anyone knows where the name "The Partridge Family" for the show title originated??

I am curious because I have the Partridge surname in my ancestry on my mothers ,fathers side!

From the interview with series creator Bernard Slade, from the People and Places section of this website:

GH: Where did the name "Partridge" come from?

BS: It was the name of somebody I played soccer with in England. I thought it was a pretty unusual name and it just stuck with me. It turns out to be a fairly common name there. The original name for the series, however, was "Family Business".
