Meaning:Path
A name as fresh as a walk in the woods, Trail is a masculine title of Scottish origin steeped in ambiguity. From the English word, Trail inspires imagery of the rugged outdoors, nature, and mountains. Traill and Trail are Scottish surnames formed long ago, possibly for those with lost or forgotten surnames or the stream Abhainn Traill that runs into Upper Loch Torridon in Scotland. What’s more, this surname was also used in French and could have been brought to Britain by the Normans. However, Trail’s experience as a French surname is owed to its potentially Norse roots. Honeycombed with uncertain origins, Trail’s true meaning remains unknown for now. Regardless, Trail prevails as a beautiful nature name that makes every breath feel like fresh air.
