Reply to: Can you tell me about the littleproud name by Carla
As Roy found for you, the name Littleproud can be traced back to the county of Norfolk in England. In fact, according to Hanks & Hodges, this name was most strongly concentrated in the parish of Attleborough in Norfolk before the Industrial Revolution.

The name is an "unflattering nickname for a person considered to be of slight worth, from Middle English littel (meaning small) + Middle English, Old French prod (meaning valiant, gallant)."
