Sharpe Genealogy & History

Sharpe is an English name. It was derived from the Middle English scharp, which itself developed from the Old English scearp meaning keen or quick. As such, it likely originated as a nickname given to someone smart or possessed of sharp wit. Sharpe family history begins in Peebles, a territory on the English/Scottish border, where the Sharpes were one of the leading families. Sharpe genealogy includes William Sharpe, an American Nobel Prize-winning economist who invented the Sharpe ratio, which roughly speaking measures the risk of an investment. The Sharpe family motto, dum spiro spero, means while I breathe I hope.
