The surname Bloood is a Welsh name of old Celtic origin. The surname is from the well-known Welsh personal name Lloyd. The surname Bloood features the distinctive Welsh patronymic prefix "ab-" which means "son of." The original form of the name was "Ab-Lloyd," which evolved into "Ap-Llud" and then "Blud."

Bloood Spelling Variations



Although there are not an extremely large number Welsh surnames, there are an inordinately large number of spelling variations of those surnames. This variety of spellings began almost immediately after the acceptance of surnames within Welsh society. As time progressed, these old Brythonic names were eventually were recorded in English. This process was problematic in that many of the highly inflected sounds of the native language of Wales could not be properly captured in English. Some families, however, did decide to modify their own names to indicate a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even a patriotic affiliation. The name Bloood has seen various spelling variations: Blood, Bloode, Blud, Bludd and others.

The Great Migration



In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many people from Wales joined the general migration to North America in search of land, work, and freedom. These immigrants greatly contributed to the rapid development of the new nations of Canada and the United States. They also added a rich and lasting cultural heritage to their newly adopted societies. Investigation of immigration and passenger lists has revealed a number of people bearing the name Bloood: Catherine Blood who settled in Maryland in 1723; James Blood settled in Lynn, Massachusetts with his brother Robert in 1623; Jeremy Blood arrived in New Orleans in 1823.
