Trussell Name Meaning

English (East Midlands): of uncertain origin; perhaps from Old French troussel, Middle English trussel in the sense ‘packet’, and hence an occupational nickname for a peddler, or from the same word in the sense ‘stamp’, ‘mould (for stamping coins)’, and hence an occupational name for a minter. Alternatively, it may be from a nickname representing a variant of Thrussell, from Middle English throstle ‘thrush’, given probably to a cheerful person, the bird being noted for its cheerful song.
