Neale Meaning & Etymology

The surname Neale is possibly derived from the Gaelic "Nial" or "Niall" meaning Champion. Unusually, the name may have arrived in Britain via Iceland, Norway and France, being introduced by the Normans after 1066. The original Vikings first landed in Ireland in the 7th Century and then "returned home" before invading both Britain and what is now Normandy (the place of the Norse-men). Early recordings include Willelmus Nel of Yorkshire in 1304, Roger Niel of Suffolk (1319), whilst Amos Neale was christened at St. Giles Church, Cripplegate, on August 18th 1585. The first recorded spelling of the family name is probably Robertus Neel in 1208, in the "Berkshire Curia Pipe Rolls", during the reign of King John, 1199 - 1216. There may be other explanations for the etymology of the name, the above is just one possibility.
