Name Meaning

1 English and Scottish: occupational name for a miller. The standard modern vocabulary word represents the northern Middle English term, an agent derivative of mille ‘mill’, reinforced by Old Norse mylnari ( see Milner ). In southern, western, and central England Millward (literally, ‘mill keeper’) was the usual term. The American surname has absorbed many cognate surnames from other European languages, for example French Meunier , Dumoulin , Demoulins, and Moulin ; German Mueller ; Dutch Molenaar ; Italian Molinaro ; Spanish Molinero; Hungarian Molnár; Slavic Mlinar , etc.2 Southwestern and Swiss German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Müller ( see Mueller ).
