About the Earl surname

Earl Name Meaning

English: originally, like most of the English names derived from the ranks of nobility, either a nickname or an occupational name for a servant employed in a noble household. The vocabulary word is a native one, from Old English eorl ‘nobleman’, and in the Middle Ages was often used as an equivalent of Norman Count.
