MAILE Family History

This unusual and interesting name has two possible origins, the first and most likely being from the Norman nickname for a very "male", masculine man, from the Olde French word "masle". In Middle English the word became "male", meaning virile, masculine. The second possible origin is from a German nickname for someone with a reputation for talking or perhaps eating excessively, derived from the German "maul", meaning "mouth". The surname development has included Stephen Male (1230, Essex) and Robert Mayle (1607, London).
