An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The origins of the distinguished surname Lollar are somewhat obscure. The name is most likely related to the Middle Dutch word "lollaerd," meaning "babbler of nonsense"; alternatively, it is possible that the name is connected to the early Middle English word "lollere," meaning "mumbler," a name applied to a pious person. "Lollar" was substituted in the 14th century for "Lollard" as a description of the followers of John Wyclif, an English Bible translator who was condemned as a heretic.

Lollar Early Origins



The surname Lollar was first found in East England, where the name is thought to have originated. The first known bearer of the name was Elfred le Lollere, who was recorded in the Cartularium Monasterii de Rameseia of Huntingdonshire in 1133.
