Earl Namesakes Comments :The Earl is a proper name of female person.The word earl comes from the Middle English "erl" ( warrior, nobleman ) from the equivalent meaning to the term jarl in Old Norse. It is not clear that there is an etymological relationship to the term Anglo-Saxon " Ealdorman " ( "elder", "venerable" ) which designated an official title actually replaced by that of earl during the ' eleventh century. Although the title of countess is and has been used to indicate the wife dell'earl (this term does not have a feminine form) is not clear whether the title Norman has been abandoned in favor of that of earl after the Norman conquest of England or only then regarded as a synonym ( Hughes, 1998 ). The terms in Irish and Scottish Gaelic ( Iarla ) and one in Welsh ( iarll ) have the same origin as the English one. People named Earl are Acie Earl- player and American basketball coach (born 1971), Ralph Earl- an American painter (11 May 1751 to 16 August 1801). - Leonor Karter
