RAWLINSON Family History

This most interesting surname, while ultimately of Old Scandinavian origin, is a patronymic form of the Old French personal name "Raulin" and Middle English "Rawlin". These personal names are double diminutives of "Raw", a shortened form of Ralph, from the Old Norse personal name "Radwulf", composed of the Germanic elements "rad", counsel, advice and "-wulf", wolf, with the Anglo-Norman French diminutive suffixes "-el", and "-in". The "-son", ending indicates a patronymic form, from the personal name.
