Name Meaning

English: occupational name for someone who hewed or quarried marl, or a topographic name for someone who lived on a patch of clay soil, from a derivative of Middle English marl (Old French marle, Late Latin margila, from earlier marga, probably of Gaulish origin, with the ending added under the influence of the synonymous argilla).
