Tudor Family HistoryRecorded in over seventy spelling forms ranging from the French Theodore, the Welsh and Romanian Tudor, the Italian Teodori, and the Portugese Teodoro, this ancient European surname with some royal antecedents, is of Greek origins. It derives from Theodoros, a compound containing the elements "theos", meaning god, plus "doron", a gift, hence; "God's gift". Given such a religious connection, it is hardly surprising that according to the Church Calendar, the name has been borne by no less than twenty-eight saints, and in consequence was popular throughout Europe in the Middle Ages.
