Bliss Genealogy & History

Bliss is an English name with two primary origins. First, it may be locational, from the town of Blay in Normandy, then spelled Bleis, or Stoke Bliss in Worcestershire, reportedly named for a Norman family. It could also be from the Middle English blisse, meaning joy or happiness and thus used for someone cheerful. Bliss family history starts with William Bliss, who was noted in the Pipe Rolls of Huntingdonshire in 1240. Bliss genealogy lays claim to several interesting people, such as Michigan Governor Aaron Bliss, McKinley Interior Secretary Cornelius Bliss, and Union General Zenas Bliss.
