NOBLES Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of English, Scottish and French origin and is from a nickname derived from the Middle English (1200 - 1500), Old French "noble", high-born, distinguished, illustrious, from the Latin "nobilis", referring to someone of lofty birth or character, or ironically to someone of Exceedingly humble birth and station. This is an example of that sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. The nickname were given in the first instance with reference to a variety of characteristics, such as physical attributes or peculiarities, mental and moral characteristics, supposed resemblance to an animal or bird's appearance or disposition, habits or dress, and occupation.
