The Groengras name comes from the Middle Dutch "groene," which means "green." As a surname, it came from a nickname for someone who habitually dressed in green.

Groengras Early Origins



The surname Groengras was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in South Holland, a province of Holland, the most crowded province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Rotterdam, Leyden and Shiedam.
