Riddle Genealogy & History

Riddle is an Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, and French name, with the first two having related origins. For Anglo-Saxon, it comes from many places in Scotland and Northern England named for the Old English ryge, meaning rye, and dael, meaning valley; Old Scandinavian also has dal[r] for valley. The French surname comes from the Old French name Ridel, meaning a small hill, and is used as a nickname for a fat or large-framed man. Riddle family history enters the books with Galfridus Ridel, written in the Early Medieval Records of Scotland in 1048. A few renowned members of Riddle genealogy are Delaware Representative and Senator George Riddle and Embry-Riddle University co-founder John Riddle.
