Meaning & Origins

Now normally a girl's name, but in earlier times more often given to boys. It is a transferred use of the English surname, which in turn is derived from an Old French masculine personal name introduced to Britain by the Normans in the form Joscelin. This was originally a derivative, Gautzelin, of the name of a Germanic tribe, the Gauts. The spelling of the first syllable was altered because the name was taken as a double diminutive (with the Old French suffixes -el and -in) of Josce (see Joyce).
861st in the U.S.
English, Scottish, Irish, German, and Scandinavian: from Middle English hall (Old English heall), Middle High German halle, Old Norse hōll all meaning ‘hall’ (a spacious residence), hence a topographic name for someone who lived in or near a hall or an occupational name for a servant employed at a hall. In some cases it may be a habitational name from places named with this word, which in some parts of Germany and Austria in the Middle Ages also denoted a salt mine. The English name has been established in Ireland since the Middle Ages, and, according to MacLysaght, has become numerous in Ulster since the 17th century.
29th in the U.S.
