Name Meaning

Dutch: probably a variant of Koole, from a short form of the personal name Nikolaas ( see Nicholas ). This is a common Dutch name in the Albany area. A variant form of the surname in the Netherlands is Kuilart, suggesting perhaps that these could be occupational names for a potato grower, from kuilen ‘to plant potatoes’ (from kuil ‘pit’, ‘hole’).
