    Name Meaning

    English: status name or nickname from Middle English persone, persoun ‘priest, parson’ (Old French persone). The status of medieval bearers of the surname is uncertain. Priests were generally known by a habitational name rather than by a surname denoting their role in the church. They were not allowed to marry, but doubtless many had illegitimate children, some of whom may have been given Parson as a surname. Some of the original bearers may have been given it as a nickname (compare Priest , Bishop , Monk ) or it may have been an occupational name for someone who worked for the parson (a shortened form of Personesservaunt perhaps).

    English: in northern England and the North Midlands especially, it is often a variant of Pearson . For the change in vowel compare Parr .

    Americanized form of Swedish Pärsson, Pehrsson (see Pehrson ) or Persson , patronymics from vernacular shortened forms of the personal name Peter .
