Last name: Green
© Copyright: Name Origin Research www.surnamedb.com 1980 - 2016
My mother's maiden name is Green. Her father was named Israel Green, his father Soloman Green and his father Uriah Green. Prior records have not yet been located. The classic Jewish appearance is undeniable. Although the family has not been traced beyond their generations in southern Louisiana, there was found to be a large migration and settlement of Jewish people in that area of Louisiana. They are French speaking and loyally catholic. Wish I knew more about the mane and the origin of that branch of Greens.
my great grandmother was a caucasian woman, and my great grandfather was a dark skinned Indian. It's been said that she was kicked off the plantation when she got pregnant. I am considerd african american. But my roots run deep, and i would love to know more about where i come from. My last name is my fathers side of the family.
Hello my fellow Greens!
Obviously the best last name ever =)
My dad is 100% Irish, Donegal born and raised! My Mum was born in England to my Northern Irish grandmother. I was born in Northern Ireland and moved to the South when I was 4, I live in Northern Ireland now, I guess that makes me 3/4 irish? Anyway, greens from across the globe, you rock! :D
I'm black and is trying to find the origin of the "Green" and "Greene" family. My dad side of the family is black and my mom side is Puerto Rican. My dad side of the family is awfully weird because my fathers uncle had bright blue eyes and my fathers sister has hazily eyes

I am Green - YOU are Sparticus! Irish roots, later England, we decided to hang around California for 5 generations, but we'll go back someday.
so green just means green- kinda disappointed
I like a guy who's last name is Green. I have no idea what his ancestry is other than he's just a white guy who has a grandfather who is fully Native-American. He also has green eyes and had natural blonde hair, a common trait of the Irish and I know this because my mom is Irish who has ancestry traced back to Irish immigrants, and she was a natural blonde and also has green eyes plus her surname is Kelley which is VERY Irish. My father's last name is Marcum and that has German origin, as well as English but my dad does not know much about his origins since my father's father had left when he was born and never came back and his mother abandoned him at the age of 12. There has been people who knew my grandfather that said he was Romanian Gypsy as for my paternal grandmother (who had left my dad) was half Cherokee-Indian and so was my mother's mother. My mother's FATHER was the Irishman who's surname was Kelley. I'm from Kentucky, there are many Marcums, and also Irish/Cherokee mixed Kentucky Natives. I've met one besides my mom, she was the typical blonde woman just like my mother. Anyway, I just looked up Green because the man I'm interested in has this surname and I was wondering what his possible roots are. Anyways, it doesn't matter. He's still a gorgeous man! <3
My grandfather from 10 generations back was William Green (died 1722) and is buried in present day Ewing, N.J. The house he built is also, still standing. He was born in England, but I have no information as to his arrival in America or any information as to his father or mother. The third generation after William began to move to the south and settled in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. Hundreds and perhaps thousands of the Greene's is these areas can trace heritage to Judge William Green of New Jersey.
Well it sounds like we are Irish and English..go figure

My grandfather lived in Tennessee and died in 1945 but was from one of the Carolina's earlier on, but I am not sure which one. His name was William Francis Green. He was born in 1888.
I am a black male with the last name Greene. I am born and raised in the south but I was doing a little research on my last name and I noticed that a lot of sites were saying this is an Irish last name. What is odd about it is I recall at family reunions, we have different shades of people and even white people that were not married into the Green last name but they were there and have the same last name.
