Meaning & Origins

Transferred use of the surname, itself derived from a medieval given name which may be a reduced form of Nicholas or represent a survival into Middle English of the Old English byname Cola ‘swarthy, coal-black’, from col ‘charcoal’. As a given name, it is associated with the songwriter Cole Porter (1893–1964) and has enjoyed a degree of popularity in recent times.
1,181st in the U.S.
English: occupational name for a worker in metal, from Middle English smith (Old English smið, probably a derivative of smītan ‘to strike, hammer’). Metalworking was one of the earliest occupations for which specialist skills were required, and its importance ensured that this term and its equivalents were perhaps the most widespread of all occupational surnames in Europe. Medieval smiths were important not only in making horseshoes, plowshares, and other domestic articles, but above all for their skill in forging swords, other weapons, and armor. This is the most frequent of all American surnames; it has also absorbed, by assimilation and translation, cognates and equivalents from many other languages (for forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988).
