The surname Green is one of the most common and widespread of English surnames, it was used as a nickname for someone who was fond of dressing the color green (Old English grene) or who had played the part of the ‘Green Man’ in the May Day celebrations, or a topographic name for someone who lived near a village green. In North America this name has no doubt come from other European languages, notably German Grun (see Gruen), Jewish (American), Americanized form of German Grun or Yiddish Grin, Ashkenazic ornamental names meaning ‘green’ or a short form of any of the numerous compounds with this element. Irish translation of various Gaelic surnames derived from glas ‘gray’, ‘green’ ‘blue’. Since very early times the word green has meant, young, fresh, immature or callow. Often a villager would be called ‘green’ because of something that they had done during their youth, the nickname would stick and in time it became the family name.
