Tall Name Meaning
English: nickname for a respectable or decent person, or else a good-looking one, both these senses belonging to Middle English tall (Old English getæl ‘swift’, ‘prompt’). The modern sense ‘of high stature’ did not develop until the end of the 16th century; the usual Middle English equivalents were Long and High.
