Origen: Normando. Encontrados primero en Devon donde ellos fueron sentados de tiempos muy antiguos, algunos dicen bien antes de la conquista de los normandos y la llegada de Duque William en Hastings en 1066 dC. The name Coffin is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was given to a person who was a person who made baskets. The surname Coffin is derived from the Old French words cofin and coffin, which in turn come from the Late Latin word cophinus, which means basket. Occupational names such as this one frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames. The English word coffin is a specialized development of this word which did not exist before the 16th century. The surname Coffin may also be a nickname derived from the Latin word calvus, which means bald. First found in Devon where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
