Meaning & Origins

Transferred use of the Scottish surname, now used as a given name throughout the English-speaking world. In the 20th century it was particularly popular in Australia. The surname was originally a Norman baronial name, but a precise identification of the place from which it was derived has not been made (there are a large number of possible candidates). The Bruces were an influential Norman family in Scottish affairs in the early Middle Ages; its most famous member was Robert ‘the Bruce’ (1274–1329), who is said to have drawn inspiration after his defeat at Methven from the perseverance of a spider in repeatedly climbing up again after being knocked down. He ruled Scotland as King Robert I from 1306 to 1329.
145th in the U.S.
English: of uncertain derivation, possibly a habitational name from Dinckley in Lancashire, recorded in 1246 as Dunkythele and Dinkedelay, and probably named with an old British name, composed of elements meaning ‘fort’ + ‘wood’, with the addition of Old English lēah ‘woodland clearing’. In the British Isles the surname is now most common in Northamptonshire.
