The surname Blooold is a Welsh name of old Celtic origin. The surname is from the well-known Welsh personal name Lloyd. The surname Blooold 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."

Blooold Spelling Variations



Although there are comparatively few Welsh surnames, they have a great many spelling variations. Variations of Welsh names began almost immediately after their acceptance within Welsh society. In the Middle Ages, it was up to priests and the few other people that recorded names in official documents to decide how to spell the names that they heard. Variations that occurred because of improper recording increased dramatically as the names were later transliterated into English. The Brythonic Celtic language of Wales, known by natives as Cymraeg, featured many highly inflected sounds that could not be properly captured by the English language. Spelling variations were, however, also carried out according to an individual's design: a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations were all indicated by the particular variation of one's name. The spelling variations of the name Blooold have included Blood, Bloode, Blud, Bludd and others.

The Great Migration



Many people from Wales joined the general migration to North America in the 19th and 20th centuries, searching for land, work, and freedom. Like the many other immigrants from the British Isles, they made a significant contribution to the development of Canada and the United States. The Welsh and their descendents added a rich cultural tradition to the newly developed towns, cities, and villages. An investigation of the immigration and passenger lists has revealed a number of people bearing the name Blooold: 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.
