Name Meaning

English (Durham and Northumberland): nickname for someone with a snow‐white patch of hair or a whitish bald spot amid dark hair, from Middle English snou, snow ‘snow’ + ball ‘white streak, bald place’. Snowbald, an early variant, may be evidence of the latter meaning, from Middle English balled ‘bald’, though the -d may be excrescent. Compare Bald , Ball 3.
