Re: surname Heather
in reply to a message by tilly
One of my name books says that it comes from Middle English ...obviously from folks that lived in an area with plenty of heather ...If you want to go deeper, my Indo-European root book says that it derives from Old English, 'hǽth' meaning untilled land.
