Name Meaning

English (Staffordshire and Gloucestershire): habitational name, chiefly from either of two places called Malpas (Cheshire, England and Monmouthshire, Wales); perhaps also occasionally from other minor places so called in England (e.g. in Berkshire, Cornwall, and Yorkshire) or from various places called Malpas or Maupas in France. The placenames derive from Old French mal ‘bad’ + pas ‘passage’.
