Meaning & History

This very unusual name is of Old Norse origin and is a locational surname from the place in Cheshire called "Antrobus". The placename is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Entrebus", and in the Pipe Rolls of Cheshire of 1282 as "Anterbus". The derivation of the name is from the Old Norse personal name "Eindrithi" or "Andrithi", with the Old Norse "buski", shrub, bush or thicket, the whole name thus signifying "Andrithi's thicket".
