The Aylmore surname is a habitational derived from the place name Elmore in Gloucestershire. The place name is in turn derived from the Old English "elm," meaning "elm," and "ofer," meaning "river bank," or "ridge." Another authority claims that the name was originally an Anglo-Saxon personal name. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Aylmore Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Aylmore family name include Aylmer, Aylmore, Elmar, Elmer, Elmers, Elmore and others.
