Surname meaning for Blood
English: evidently from Old English blod ‘blood’, but with what significance is not clear. In Middle English the word was in use as a metonymic occupational term for a physician, i.e. one who lets blood, and also as an affectionate term of address for a blood relative. Welsh: Anglicized form of Welsh ap Llwyd ‘son of Llwyd’ (see Lloyd).
