The Mayol name is derived form the Basque word "maiora" which means "heather, moor or heath;" as such it was likely a topographic name for someone who lived near a moor. The surname also comes from a Spanish word "mayor," meaning "head" or "chief" that was an occupational name for the foreman of a gang of agricultural workers or the leader of a group of herdsmen.
