The name is from the Scottish Highlands, Mac Gille Mhoire (Scottish Gaelic). The name was a patronymic name meaning "servant of (the Virgin) Mary". It was then Anglicised as Morrison. Other variations are Gilmore, Muirison, MacGillivray.

I can't find any relation of me to them, but the Bullard brothers are comedians, both of
whom had their own TV shows.

Pat Bullard hosted 'The Pat Bullard Show' in New York, each day before Oprah came on in 1995-6.
He also hosted 'Love Connection' (taking over for the legendary Chuck Woolery) for 1998-1999.
He also hosted 'Baloney,' 'Hold Everything' and 'Card Sharks.'

Older brother Mike Bullard was the host of "Open Mike with Mike Bullard" for six years on CTV
and The Comedy Network. His co-host and Band Leader was Orin Isaacs, who is famous for
collaborating with many of the world's great musicians (and for playing bass on the America's
got talent franchises.) Mike Bullard published 'Open Book." I can't say how many copies it
sold, but I remember seeing it on the Canada sales charts...

In our family, it comes from the area just west of London, England.
I have the family Bible of my grandfather (several 'greats' in there)
He was one of the butchers and it was his job to keep the bulls calm and
especially to prevent them from realizing they were being slaughtered.
There are two records of the bulls realizing what was up and kind of a
bull-panic ensued. When commoners started getting surnames, they referred
to John as 'John T Bullherder.' No one seems to know how it became
Bullard, it just switched in the late 1700s.

There are two other families of Bullards I have encountered.

One claims to be descended from a 'retired priest' who had a family. I'll
take the guy at his word: he says that a 'bol' is the bald spot that friars
shave atop their heads. He goes on to explain that 'ard' means the same as
'Mc' or '-son'... the child of. Hence Bolard was the son of a friar. I have
seldom heard of priests retiring to have families, although it certainly
must happen...

The other is certain his family were Irish and that a 'Bulle' was someone
who wrote for a living - either as a scribe or book-writer. His family did
publish several books under the names Bullerd and Bullard, so I believe in
the accuracy of this one...

This surname is the rarest use of a first name, unlike Jackson, Harrison, Smith I could go with on, but it sounds plain enough to actually be a common surname with seldom use as a first name.

I have this surname. Romanizations of the character 周 are (in my opinion) heavily based on pronunciation, since it translates to the Chinese surnames "Chiau", "Chau", "Chao", "Chew", "Chow", "Chou", "Cho", "Chu", "Jhou", "Joe", "Jou", "Jue", or "Jow". In Korean, the closest equivalent in "Joo" or "Ju". In Vietnamese, the closest equivalent is "Châu" or "Chu". Oddly enough when I visited South Korea I didn't have the option to use the Chinese character, although I intend to for any future trips anywhere in Asia.

GRAY  added 8/13/2018, 1:03:07 PM by ncgray
1
The surname Gray has two different derivations. As a nickname, it came from the Gaelic word riabhach, which means gray. As a habitational name, it derived from the place named Graye, in Calvados, France.
The nickname supposedly comes from Northumberland, England. However, history shows that William the Conqueror was a Gray from Calvados and people of his family settled in Northumberland.

SCHUYLER  added 7/6/2018, 10:31:29 PM by ShuylerBuitron

There is another derivative spelling of the name 'Schuyler.' In the 1700s in the USA, there was a General Schuyler, and the historians dropped the 'c' from the name, leaving the last name as 'Shuyler.' So there are relatives of the Schulyers in the USA with the last name Shuyler.

It is my middle name.

ROMERO  added 6/29/2018, 6:29:47 AM by rosmarin

Romero is not derived from Rome. It is the Spanish word for the herb Rosemary = Lat. Rosmarinus officinalis see: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosmarinus_officinalis. There has been a famous musician, Mateo Romero, who was born in Liege, Belgium as Mathieu Rosmarin (ca. 1575 – 1647) who was taken to Spain at the age of 8 see (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mateo_Romero_(composer)).
According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosemary and Latin dictonaries the name Rosmarin derives from the Latin words "ros" ("dew" or "tear") and marin ("sea")
According to my Ancestry-research the family name was used as
Rosmarin (German) (old/alternative writings: Rohsmarin, Roßmarin)
Rožmarin (Slovenian, Czech, Slowak, Polish etc.) (also sometimes: Rozmarin)
Ružmarin (Croation)
Romarin (French)
