Surname meaning for "Mallory"

English (of Norman origin): nickname for an unfortunate person, from Old French malheure ‘unhappy’, ‘unlucky’. The etymology from maloret ‘ill-omened’ (Latin male ‘badly’ + auguratus) is less likely for the surname that has actually survived, although it does lie behind other medieval Norman surnames of this form, now defunct.
