The surname Dull was first found in Germany, where the name Dollard came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Dollard, Dillard, Dolard, Dilard, Dollards, Dillards, Dullaert, Dollardt, Dillardt, Dollart and many more.
