Arrow Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Arrow in Warwickshire or Arrowe in Cheshire. The first takes its name from the Arrow river, a Celtic or pre-Celtic term meaning ‘stream’; the second, recorded c. 1245 as Arwe, is from Old Norse erg ‘shieling’. Perhaps in some cases a translation of French La Flèche (‘the arrow’).
