SOARES Family History

This interesting surname is of Old French origin, and belongs to that sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. These nicknames were originally given with reference to a variety of personal characteristics, such as physical attributes and peculiarities, and to habits of dress and behaviour. The derivation, in this instance, is from the Old French "sor", chestnut (ultimately of Germanic origin referring to the colour of autumnal leaves), and used here to denote someone with reddish-brown hair.
