Orr Genealogy & History

Orr is an English, Irish, and Scottish name with several origins. Primarily, it derives from the Old Norse Orri, meaning a blackcock, or a male black grouse; it can also come from the Gaelic odhar, meaning pale or tan-colored. Thirdly, it might be from the Old English ora, which means shore or flat-topped ridge, for which a few places were named. Orr family history enters the books with Agnes de Ore, noted in the Pipe Rolls of Wiltshire in 1210. Orr genealogy includes former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Jimmy Orr, Scottish Nobel laureate in peace John Orr, and Indiana Governor Robert Orr.
