A product of the ancient Brythonic Celts of Wales, the name Budd, is from the Old English personal name Budda, which is derived from the word budda, which means beetle. The root meaning of budda is to swell, and the surname Budd may also be a nickname applied to a fat person, or perhaps ironically, to a thin one.

Budd Early Origins



The surname Budd was first found in Cornwall, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

Budd 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 Budd has seen various spelling variations: Budd, Budde, Bud, Budds, Bude and others.
