Ed Gordon - Origin of the surname - Netflix

The Scottish surname Gordon may be derived from several locations. One possibility is from Gordon, in Berwickshire. Another possibility is from a similarly named place in Normandy. The English surname Gordon is derived from the placename of Gourdon, in Saône-et-Loire, France. This location is derived from the Gallo-Roman personal name Gordus. In Ireland, the surname Gordon is of several origins. One origin of the surname is from the Scottish surname, which spread into Ireland in the 17th century during the plantation era; in the Irish language this name is spelt de Górdún. Also, the surname Gordon is an Anglicised form of the Irish language Mag Mhuirneacháin, which is a patronymic form of the personal name Muirneachán. This personal name is derived from the Irish language word muirneach, meaning “beloved”. Another origin of the Irish name Gordon is as an Anglicised form of the Irish language surname Mórbhoirneach. Gordon (Hebrew: גורדון‎ Russian: Гордон) is also a Jewish surname, adopted during the late 18th century primarily by Lithuanian Jews. Jews up to this time did not typically have surnames, but they were forced to by decree. Jews in Lithuania, particularly Vilnius and Kaunas, adopted the Gordon surname most likely as a result of familiarity with the surnames of Scottish merchants named Gordon who set up businesses throughout the region. Virtually all Jewish Gordons trace their ancestry to these and nearby cities. The Spanish, and Galician surname Gordón is derived from places like-named in the Spanish and Galician languages. The Basque language Gordon is also derived from a like-named placename. Another origin for the Spanish surname is from the nickname Gordo, which is derived from the Spanish language word gordo, meaning “fat”.
