Spurling is from the German name von Spürling (Spuerling)/ Sperling. 'Sperling is a surname meaning "sparrow" found on p. 533 in Bahlow/Gentry (Dictionary of German Names) under the heading Sperl, where Johan Sperling is dated to 1285.'

Hi Meagan,

My name is Mike Spurling and I too am looking for the origin of the name Spurling and any other family name history. I would be interested to learn what, if anything, that you have figured out.
