Super Family History
Super Name Meaning
English: perhaps a nickname from Middle English soper sopper souper super (Old French soper souper Anglo-Norman French super) ‘supper meal (especially one taken in the evening)’. This explanation fits the Middle English surname forms well but the reason for its possible use as a surname is unclear. English: perhaps from the Middle English personal name Super (from Latin Superius ‘greater higher’) but this is so rare that it may not be a safe explanation. English: perhaps a post-medieval variant of Soper but the evidence for such a variant is too slight to bear much weight. Jewish (from Latvia): probably a much altered form of Shapiro .
