Name Meaning

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): nickname for a big man, from Middle High German grōz ‘large, corpulent’, German gross. This surname is also established in some other parts of Europe, most notably in France (Alsace and Lorraine). In Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Croatia it is also found (in Slovenia almost exclusively) in the Slavicized form Gros (see also 3 below). The Jewish name has been Hebraicized as Gadol .

English: descriptive nickname for a big man, from Middle English gros, grosse, groce ’large; heavy’, also meaning ‘simple, plain’, from Old French gros ‘big, fat’ (from Latin grossus ‘thick’), a word of ancient Germanic origin, thus etymologically the same word as in 1 above.

Germanized or Americanized form of Slovenian, Polish, Croatian or other Slavic Gros , itself of German origin (see 1 above).
