Meaning and Origin of: Yeoman boy

| Share

First name origin & meaning:

English: Servant

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English and Scottish: status name, from Middle English yoman, yeman, used of an attendant of relatively high status in a noble household, ranking between a Sergeant and a Groom, or between a Squire and a Page. The word appears to derive from a compound of Old English geong ‘young’ + mann ‘man’. Later in the Middle English period it came to be used of a modest independent freeholder, and this latter sense may well lie behind some examples of the surname.
  2. English and Scottish: topographic name, an expanded form of Yeo.
