Goll Name Meaning

English: nickname for a silly person, from Middle English golle ‘unfledged bird’. There is evidence of a female personal name Golla and it is possible that this also may have given rise to the surname. German and Swiss German: unflattering nickname from dialect goll ‘bullfinch’, in the sense ‘simpleton’; or perhaps a variant of Gollmann (see Goleman 2).
