The English surname Mulle is thought to have arisen independently from a few different sources. It comes from the medieval personal name, derived from the Old English word "mule," meaning a "halfbreed." This was the name of a brother of Ceadwalla, King of Wessex (died 675). It also comes from Old Norse "muli" meaning "muzzle," or "snout." And, it also came from the Middle English "mule," referring to the animal "mule;" in which instance it was likely originally a nickname for a stubborn person, or an occupational name for a driver of pack animals.

Mulle Early Origins



The surname Mulle was first found in Devon where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 12th century when they held lands.
