Multiple Origins for the Surname Gaul


German


The distinguished German surname Gaul is derived from the Celtic word "Gallus," meaning "foreigner, stranger." During the Middle Ages, the name was popular throughout Europe in various forms due to the fame of St. Gall, a 7th century Irish monk. "Gaul" was initially bestowed as a personal name in Germany, and was likely transformed into a surname during the late 11th century.

Gaul Early Origins



The surname Gaul was first found in various regions of Germany. The surname emerged independently in the regions of Bavaria, Pomerania, Silesia, and Oldenburg, creating several branches of the family as early as the 13th century. The young Gaul family was instrumental during this early period, each branch playing a major role in the development of medieval German society in its particular region.
