So I decided to look up the meaning behind my last name.
I was destined for this before it even began. We always wondered whom I got the horse bug from...
I guess I have my great great great great great great grandfather to blame.
Scottish: variant of Fergus, in which the Gaelic gh sound has been dropped rather than being altered to g. Compare Farrish, Ferris.
Probably also a variant of English Farrar; the name is quite common in southeast England.
Northern English: occupational name for a smith or worker in iron, from Middle English and Old French farrour, ferour, from medieval Latin ferrator, an agent derivative of ferrare ‘to shoe horses’, from ferrum ‘iron’, in medieval Latin ‘horseshoe’.
