Malbrough Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Malborough (Devon) or Marlborough (Wiltshire). The Wiltshire place name is from an unattested Old English personal name M?rla or Old English meargealla ‘gentian’ + beorg ‘hill’, ‘mound’. Irish: possibly a variant of the County Clare surname Malborough, Marlborough, which MacLysaght considers to be probably an Anglicization of Gaelic Ó Maoilbhearaigh (see Mulberry 2). Perhaps also an Americanized form of German Malburg.
