Reply to: the meaning of surnames Clay and Riddle by Andrew Darico

Doesn't seem too difficult

Clay - a claypit ...or more probably someone who grew up near one

Riddle - maybe more complicated ...possibly something to do with a "rider of a horse" ...the original riddler comes from Latin 'ridere' which means "to laugh"
