Record Name Meaning

English: from Richward, a Norman personal name composed of the Germanic elements ric ‘power(ful)’ + ward ‘guard’. French: from Old French record, recort ‘recollection’, ‘account’, ‘testimony’, and by extension ‘witness’, hence perhaps a nickname for someone who had given evidence in a court of law, or a metonymic occupational name for a clerk who recorded court proceedings. New England variant of French Ricard, reflecting an Americanized spelling of the Canadian pronunciation.
