Keillor (pronounced kee-luhr) is a surname of Scottish origin.[2] It is thought to derive from the Scottish Gaelic word "gu leòr" (modern English, “galore”) meaning "sufficient," "enough" or "plenty. [3] [4]

Origin and variants Keillor is a habitational name derived from a small settlement called "Keillor" in the village of Kettins near the town of Coupar Angus in the current council area of Perth and Kinross in north-eastern Scotland.[5]

A very old surname, the first Keillor family lived at Keillor where they had historically held a family seat.[6] Although originally a Scottish name, it is also historically concentrated in Northern England, most notably in the region of Yorkshire.

Until the gradual standardization of English spelling in the last few centuries, English lacked any comprehensive system of spelling. Medieval Scottish names, particularly as they were anglicized from the original Gaelic, historically displayed wide variations in recorded spellings as scribes of the era spelled words according to how they sounded rather than any set of rules.

This means that a person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. As such, different variations of the Keillor surname usually have the same origin.[7]

Aside from the United Kingdom, variants of the surname can be found today across the English-speaking world, particularly in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands.

Keillor can also be found in several non-English speaking countries, including Sweden (where a Scottish Keillor moved to Sweden and set up business), Panama, France, Germany, Brazil, Spain, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Costa Rica, China and Belgium.
