Origin of the Name Simon

The origin of the name Simon was found in the archives. Meaning 'the son of Simon', this is a baptismal name. Variants include Simmonds, Simmons, Simonds, Simons, Symmonds, Symmons, Symonds, Symondson, Symons, Symon and Simmance. Taken from the New Testament this name been in use from the Middle Ages onwards. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a John Simond, of Oxfordshire, and a Thomas Symon, of Suffolk, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. An Alicia relicta Symonys was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Scotland a William filius Symon was a witness in the year 1178, and a Henry Symonis was a witness in the year 1481. In Ireland the name is found throughout the four provinces, having been introduced there from England centuries ago.
The Simon coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Simon descendants.
