Fraser

Origen: Escocés. The origins of the Fraser family name are somewhat of a mystery. The earliest recorded versions of the name, from the 12th century, are de Fresel, de Friselle and de Freseliere, which appear to be Norman; however they have never been found in Normandy itself. The other possibility is that the name was derived from Gaelic, but no-one has been able to locate a Gaelic name from which Fraser might be derived. It is thought that it was in later years that the "fraisse," or Strawberry was adopted as part of the Armorial bearings of this family due to the similarity of the pronunciation of this French word to the Fraser surname. First found in Tweedale, East Lothian (Gaelic: Lodainn an Ear), a former county, sometimes known as Haddingtonshire located in the Lowland region surrounding the city of Edinburgh, where Sir Simon Frasee held part of the lands of Keith.
