Wishart Name Meaning

Scottish (of Norman origin): from the Anglo-Norman French form, Wischard, of the Old French personal name Guiscard. This was formed in Normandy from the Old Norse elements viskr ‘wise’ + hard ‘hardy’, ‘brave’, ‘bold’ (or possibly the Old French suffix -ard). Compare the French cognate Guiscard.



This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the surname Wishart and its variants. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

Hi! I created the companion category for your name study (Category:Wishart Name Study). Feel free to edit it. The default for the template is to add the main category, but you can add a line to have a different category. See the ONS template page for details. Give me a holler if you have any questions about categorization.

I also created a redirect, so Project:Wishart (the link for the button from the Wishart surname page) brings you to this page.

Cheers, Liz
