Name Meaning

English (southern): apparently from the Middle English abstract noun grist ‘grinding’, Old English grist, a derivative of grindan (see Grinder ), so possibly a metonymic occupational name for a miller. The word was not used in the concrete sense of grain to be ground until the 15th century.
