Meaning of the name--Tofsrud
I am searching for information on what my maiden last name means. I do know that there aren't that many Tofsrud's in the world as I have been doing a family search. However, I do find that they are from Norway, and some came over here and settled in North Dakota and some are now in the Upper Pennisula in Wisconsin.
Thank you so much for any help that you can bring.

Norwegians used to have a second surname that was usually a farm name. This is such a farm name. Rud means 'clearing'. Tof must be short for Tollef, a common first name in Norway. I don't know its meaning though.
