An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The Roderick surname is derived from the Welsh personal name Rhydderch. The name also came to Britain with the Normans, usually in the form Rodrick. The name means "famous ruler", and appears in Old German as Hrodric. Saint Roderick (d. 857) is venerated as one of the Martyrs of Córdoba.

Roderick Early Origins



The surname Roderick was first found in Powys (Welsh: Powys), a Welsh Kingdom in post-Roman times, now a county of Wales created by joining the former counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, and Breconshire, north Wales where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
