*prōdis / *prodem > prou, proesse, proece > prow

This name derives from the Middle English “prow”, from the Old French “prou, proesse, proece”, meaning “stalwart, valiant, brave”. In turn this name derives from the Latin “*prōdis / *prodem“, meaning ”outstanding or superior skill or ability, bravery or fearlessness, expert in battle”. The name comes in England by the Bretons during the Norman Conquest in 1066 AD passing through as a surname from a Welsh family.
