Possible Germanic Surname
Looking for a country or region of origin for this name
P. M. Engramell
Closest names I could get were Ancient Germanic.
He was a Augustinian monk and lived from 1727 to 1780
I'm trying to do some research for a historical fiction book, heavy on the fiction part, not terribly important but I would like to add some depth to this character.

The person you're referring to is Père Marie-Dominique-Joseph Engramelle (see http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie-Dominique-Joseph_Engramelle). The surname is French and is a variant of Engrammel/Emgramer/Engremer(e). The origin is thought to be the placename Ingremare in Eure (Basse-Normandie).
