Everett Family History

Everett Name Meaning

English (of Norman origin): from the Middle English personal names Everard and Everet. These might occasionally be from the Old English form of the name Eoforheard (from eofor ‘boar’ + heard ‘hardy brave’) but many bearers of this name were undoubtedly Normans who took it from the cognate ancient Germanic Eburhard Everhard.
