Name Meaning

English: from Middle English (h)apse, (h)aspe ‘aspen tree, white poplar’ (Old English æpse, æspe). Generally, this was a topographic name for someone who lived by an aspen tree or a habitational name from a place called with this word, for example Apps in Surrey, Apse Manor on the Isle of Wight, or The Asps in Warwickshire.

English: perhaps from the Middle English personal name Eppe, a possible survival of Old English Eoppa, or its female counterpart Eoppe (Latinized in post-Conquest records as Eppa), probably from a stem eorp- ‘red’. Alternatively, Eppe may derive from Old Norse Øpi, perhaps from the stem øp- found in the verb øpa ‘to cry out, shriek’.

American shortened form of Van Epps , a surname of Dutch origin.
