BOSS Family History

This interesting surname has a number of possible sources. Firstly, the surname may be of Old French origin, and would have been a nickname for a hunchback, deriving from the Old French "bosse", hump, lump, hunchback. The creation of surnames from nicknames was a common practice in the Middle Ages, and many modern-day surnames derive from medieval nicknames referring to personal characteristics. Secondly, the surname may be from the Old Germanic personal name "Boso", from an element meaning "audacious, wicked".
