Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived by an ash tree, a variant of Ash by misdivision of Middle English atten ash ‘at the ash’, or a habitational name from any of the many places in England and Wales named Nash, from this phrase, as for example Nash in Buckinghamshire, Herefordshire, or Shropshire. The name was established from an early date in Wales and Ireland.

Jewish: possibly an Americanized form of one or more similar (like-sounding) Jewish surnames.

History: The surname Nash was taken to Ireland from England or Wales by a family who established themselves in County Kerry in the 13th century, during the second wave of Anglo-Norman settlement. — Abner Nash (c. 1740–86), governor of NC, was of Welsh origin, his parents having emigrated to VA from Wales in 1730. His brother Francis (c. 1742–77) was a general in the Continental army; the city of Nashville, TN, was named in his honor.
