Last Name TAYLOR


Meaning The taylor, a cutter-out of cloth, a maker of clothes ('tailor,' 'taylor,' or 'tailleur,' a cutter).
A name of trade. We find this name modified to 'Tayleure,' the orthography having been changed by the bearers to hide what they thought the lowness of its origin. So Smith is changed to 'Smyth,' Turner to 'Turnour,' etc. - as Camden says, "Mollified ridiculously lest their bearers should seem villified by them." A Mr. Taylor, who, from this false pride, had changed his name to 'Tayleure,' once haughtily demanding of a farmer the name of his dog, the man replied, "Why, sir, his proper name is Jowler, but since he's a consequential kind of puppy, we calls him Jouleure!"
Origin English, Jewish, French, Native American, Chilean, Irish, Falkland, Maori, Maltese, Creole, Belgian, Zimbabwean, South african, Hungarian, Guam, Liberian
