Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for the servant of a parish priest or parson, or a patronymic denoting the child of a parson, from the possessive case of Middle English persone, parsoun ( see Parson ).2 English: many early examples are found with prepositions (e.g. Ralph del Persones 1323 ); these are habitational names, with the omission of house, hence in effect occupational names for servants employed at the parson's house.3 Irish: usually of English origin (see above), but sometimes a reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac an Phearsain, which is of Highland Scottish origin ( see McPherson ).
