An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Gallup has a history dating as far back as the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name for a person who was a fast runner. The surname is derived from the Old Norman word walup and the Old French word galop. The word eventually became wallop which literally means to run. Therefore, the surname Gallup described the physical abilities of the original bearer.

Gallup Early Origins



The surname Gallup was first found in Dorset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Gallup, or a variant listed above:
