    Name Meaning

    English (Bedfordshire): topographic name for someone who lived ‘(by the) broad place’, typically a cultivated strip of land in an area of common land, from Middle English brede (Old English brǣdu ‘breadth’), or a habitational name from any of various minor places so named, for example Brede in Sussex, named from the same word with the sense ‘broad valley’.

    Dutch: nickname for a well-built man, from breed ‘broad’.

    History: The American bearers of the surname Breed are in many cases descended from Alan Breed, who came to Salem, MA, from England in 1629, and subsequently settled at Saugus, MA.
