About the Warren surname

The surname Warren is English, but one of medieval French origins, of which there are three. The first is locational from the village of La Varrenne in the department of Seine-Maritime, and meaning the place on the sandy soil. The second is topographical and describing someone who lived by a game park, while thirdly it may be occupational for someone employed in such a place. If so the derivation is from the Norman French word "warrene", meaning a warren or land set aside for breeding game. Introduced into England and Scotland after the Conquest of 1066, the surname is one of the earliest on record. It is also a French surname, "de Warenne," meaning "from La Varrene".
