English: from the Middle English personal name Toll, Old English Toll, or Old Norse Tóli, the latter being derived from a reduced form of a compound name such as þórleifr (composed of the elements þórr, name of the Scandinavian god of thunder (see Thor) + leifr ‘relic’) or þórleikr (composed of the elements þórr + leikr ‘sport’, ‘play’). English: topographic name from toll ‘clump of trees’, a dialect term of Kent, Sussex, and Hampshire. German: nickname from Middle High German tol, dol ‘foolish’, also ‘pretty’ or ‘handsome’.
