GRADIS Origin of surname

GRADIS

Surnames derive from one of many different origins. Sometimes there may be more than one explanation for the same name. This family name is a toponymic (derived from a geographic name of a town, city, region or country). Surnames that are based on place names do not always testify to direct origin from that place, but may indicate an indirect relation between the name-bearer or his ancestors and the place, such as birth place, temporary residence, trade, or family-relatives.

Gradis is based on Gradiz, a locality in Portugal. Gradis was the name of a family of shipowners and community leaders which flourished in Bordeaux, southern France, since the 17th century.

Distinguished bearers of the Jewish family name Gradis include the French merchant, David Gradis (1665-1751).
