The Moile name is derived from the Cornish word "moyl," meaning "bald," as such, it may have evolved from a nickname.

Moile Early Origins



The surname Moile was first found in Cornwall where the surname is "not from mule, as the family appear to have imagined when they assumed the arms, 'Gules, a moyle or mule passant argent;' but from a place in or contiguous to the parish of St. Minovor. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
