ROLLO Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including Rollo, the usual spelling, as well as Rao, Raol, Rau, and diminutives such as Rollett, Rollitt, Rowlett, and others, this is an Anglo-French surname. It is pre medieval and derives from Rou, Roul and the usual Norman Rolf, ultimately from the Germanic "Hrodwulf". This was a compound with the elements "hrod", meaning renown, and "wulf", a wolf. The name was especially popular among Nordic peoples in the contracted version "Hrolf", and seems to have reached England by two separate channels.
