Meaning, Origin, Etymology
Derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century word “wrath”, meaning angry or fierce, it was a nickname either for somebody with a fierce temper, or more probably given the robust humour of the medieval period, the reverse, in fact a quiet person. It is is an example of a sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames. The nicknames were given in the first instance with reference to a variety of characteristics, such as physical attributes or peculiarities, mental and moral characteristics, and sometimes supposed resemblance to an animal or birds in appearance or disposition. It has been claimed that originally the surname as Wraith was usually found in Northern England, although the spellings as Wroth and Wroath are generally from the south of the country.
