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


From the historical and enchanting region of Scotland emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Hemel family. Originally, the Scottish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Scotland is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Hemel is a nickname type of surname Anglicized from the Gaelic name O'hAdhmaill, which means active.

Hemel Early Origins



The surname Hemel was first found in Normandy, where Robert, Ranulph, Turstan and Savaric Hamel were recorded in 1180. From Normandy they branched to England in the wake of the Conquest. Shortly after their arrival in England members of the family moved to Scotland, and throughout the following centuries branches of this family were to remain in France as well as in their new homelands.
