Smile / Smiles

Origen: Escocés. The surname Smile is derived from the Old English word "smal," which means "narrow," "thin," or "small," and evolved from a nickname for a person who was small in stature. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. First found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Friù), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland, 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.

Variantes: Smile, Smiles, Small, Smalle, Smal y otros.
