Name Meaning

English: occupational name for someone who covered roofs with wooden shingles, from an agent derivative of Middle English spoon ‘chip’, ‘splinter’. However, from the 14th century, under Scandinavian influence, the word had also begun to acquire its modern sense denoting the eating utensil, and in some cases the surname may have been acquired by someone who made spoons, typically from wood or horn.
