Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived in a newly constructed dwelling, from Middle English newe ‘new’ + bold ‘building’. There are several places (in Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire) named with the same elements in Old English (nēowe + bold), and the surname may also be derived from any or all of them.
