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

Moyle Early Origins



The surname Moyle 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]
