About the Conrad surname


Gender: Masculine Usage: English, German, Ancient Germanic Pronounced: KAHN-rad (English), KAWN-raht (German)

Derived from the Germanic elements kuoni "brave" and rad "counsel". This was the name of a 10th-century saint and bishop of Konstanz, in southern Germany. It was also borne by several medieval German kings and dukes. In England it was occasionally used during the Middle Ages, but has only been common since the 19th century when it was reintroduced from Germany. []
