Farrant Family HistoryThis most interesting surname is of Old French origin, and has two possible interpretations. Firstly, it may be a medieval descriptive nickname for someone with grey hair, or more likely, a metonymic occupational name for a worker in iron, a blacksmith or whitesmith, from the Old French word "ferrant", iron-grey. Secondly, according to some authorities, the name may also derive from the medieval given name "Ferrant", the Old French form of "Ferdinand", which is a Spanish (Visigothic) personal name composed of the elements "fareth", journey, expedition, plus "naneth", daring, brave.
