Rouillard Name Meaning

French: diminutive of Rouille, apparently a nickname from Old French rouiller ‘roll the eyes in anger’. However, in medieval slang the term denoted a type of barrel or cask, and the surname may have arisen, perhaps as a nickname or a metonymic occupational name, from this sense. The surname Ross is associated with Rouillard, perhaps arising out of a confusion with rouille ‘rust’.
