Ore Name Meaning
English: habitational name from any of the places called Oare in Berkshire, Kent, and Wiltshire, or Ore in East Sussex, all named with Old English ora ‘shore’, ‘hill-slope’, ‘flat-topped ridge’. It may also be a topographic name from the same element, though Reaney and Wilson consider that in general this would have had an initial N-. Compare Noah 2. Scottish: possibly from the Sussex place name.
