Last name origin & meaning:
- German and English : topographic name for someone who lived in or near a forest (Old High German wald, northern Middle English wald).
- Jewish (Ashkenazic) : ornamental name from German Wald ‘forest’. Very few Jews would have been living anywhere near a forest at the time when they acquired surnames, so as a Jewish name its origins are unlikely to be topographic.
