    Name Meaning

    English, Scottish, and French: status name or nickname from Middle English, Old French noble ‘high-born, distinguished, illustrious’ (from Latin nobilis), denoting someone of lofty birth or character, or someone who poses as a nobleman, or perhaps also ironically someone of low station. The surname has been established in Ireland since the 13th century, but was re-introduced in the 17th century and is now found mainly in Ulster. Compare French Lenoble .Americanized form of Jewish (Ashkenazic) and German Knöbel, Knobel , and Nobel .Spanish: nickname from noble ‘noble’ or ‘courteous, kind’ (see 1 above).
