    Name Meaning

    Scottish and northern English: habitational name from Rutherford in Maxton (Roxburghshire), apparently named with Old English hrīther, hrȳther ‘ox’ + ford ‘ford’, though a British Celtic origin of the type ro- ‘great’ + dubr- ‘water, river’ is also possible for the first element. Places named Rutherford in West Linton (West Lothian) and Barningham (North Yorkshire) are less likely sources of the name.
