Origins Available: English
The saga of the name Millaud follows a line reaching back through history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon
tribes in Britain. It was a name for someone who worked as a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Millaud is derived from the Old English word mylenweard.
This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner
predominates. The "mill-ward" was the keeper of the mill having derived from the Middle English words "melle, mulle, and mulne." CITATION[CLOSE]
