The standard modern vocabulary word represents the northern Middle English term, an agent derivative of mille ‘mill’, reinforced by Old Norse mylnari ( see Milner ).

The American surname has absorbed many cognate surnames from other European languages, for example French Meunier , Dumoulin , Demoulins, and Moulin ; German Mueller ; Dutch Molenaar ; Italian Molinaro ; Spanish Molinero; Hungarian Molnár; Slavic Mlinar , etc.2 Southwestern and Swiss German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Müller ( see Mueller ).
