Reply to: about the surname howard? by mojojo1984

It's only a boy's name.

Here you go:
From an Old English surname which can derive from various occupational sources ("high warden" or "ewe herder" or "hog warden"), though another theory states that the surname derives from a Germanic first name composed of the elements hug "heart, mind" and hard "brave, hardy". The surname was borne by a British noble family.
