The name Tope is tied to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England. It comes from the Old Danish personal name Topi. Many Scandinavian personal names were left in the British Isles as a legacy of the Viking raids which plagued the coastal regions of Britain from the 8th to 10th centuries, and many of these eventually became Anglo-Saxon surnames.

Tope Early Origins



The surname Tope was first found in Lincolnshire, where the family was recorded as early as 1066.
