Name Meaning

1 English: habitational name from a place in Nottinghamshire. The early forms, from Domesday Book to the early 13th century, show the first element uniformly as Mam-, and it is therefore likely that this was a British hill-name meaning ‘breast’ ( compare Manchester ), with the later addition of Old English feld ‘pasture’, ‘open country’ ( see Field ) as the second element. The surname is now widespread throughout Midland and southern England and is also common in Ireland.2 Irish: when not an importation of 1, this is an altered form of the Norman name Manville ( see Mandeville ).3 Americanized form of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Mansfeld, a habitational name for someone from a place so called in Saxony.
