Meaning & Origins

Though in appearance a surname of Norman baronial origin, this name was in fact invented (with the intention of evoking such associations) by the novelist Fanny Burney for the hero, Lord Orville, of her novel Evelina (1778).
1,313th in the U.S.
English, Scottish, and northern Irish: occupational name for a maker of machinery, mostly in wood, of any of a wide range of kinds, from Old English wyrhta, wryhta ‘craftsman’ (a derivative of wyrcan ‘to work or make’). The term is found in various combinations (for example, Cartwright and Wainwright), but when used in isolation it generally referred to a builder of windmills or watermills.
33rd in the U.S.
