The Anglo-Saxon name Idylle comes from when the family resided in the region of Idle at Calverley in Yorkshire. Idylle is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Idylle Early Origins



The surname Idylle was first found in Herefordshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Idylle or a variant listed above: Christian Idle, who immigrated to Texas in 1846.
