The name Hore comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person who had grey hair or appeared aged. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Alternatively, the name could have been Norman in origin. In this case, it was derived from the "Norman-French pronunciation of Aure, with an aspirate. The name Aure, Alre, or Auré was a Breton name, derived from Auray, in Bretagne, of which the family were hereditary Castellans." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Another source claims the name was from Ore in Sussex and literally meant "dweller by the bank" from the Old Egnlish word "ora." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
