    There aren't many with most being patronymic.

    Greene is possibly a toponymic surname.
    Green(e) was also used as the anglicised version of a wide variety of Irish names containing uaithne, 'green', or glas, "grey-green".
    The Fleming surname would be classified as toponymic.

    Knott
    The name Knott was originally derived from a family having lived at the knot, the summit of a rocky hill, from the residence near that place.

    About the surname TORO

    I forgot to say that a family member with this surname is beatified and is entered into the Roman Curia for sanctification.

    Under notary record how he was able to make it rain and how he made the plagues of mongooses that devoured the sown fields before his prayers rise up to the sky as in a huge cloud of insects and leave the place.

    29 patronyms derived from toponyms in my family tree. Too many for me to list.

    Most of them refer to small villages (in some cases tiny hamlets) all located in "my southern Auvergne". I'll quote only a few I find representative of the local history:

    - Beaune (not the Beaune in Burgundy, well known to wine connoisseurs), a small village a few kms away from my native place. Etymology : from Gaulish Belna, a sanctuary to the Celtic god Belenos. A heritage from La Tène Celts.

    - Arfeuille (the name of a number of villages). From Latin Acrifolium, holly wood. So much for Gallo-Roman Auvergne.

    - Crozemarie. From Gaulish *Crosos, a steep-sided valley. Plus Marie, the Virgin Mary. An unexpected mixture, somehow bearing testimony to the christianization of the local die-hard pagans.

    - Giroux (also the name of several villages). In this case the toponym was originally derived from a person's name. From Germanic Gari + Wolf (the wolf - presumably a warrior - with the spear). Presumably a leftover from the Wisigothic period. Surrounded by both the Burgundians and the Wisigoths in the late 5th century, the by-now Gallo-Roman Arverni successfully resisted invasion for four years, until Rome decided to give the Auvergne over to the Wisigoths. The period is well documented thanks to the writings of Sidonius Appolinaris, son-in-law to Avitus, an Arvern nobleman who was, for a few difficult months, Emperor of Rome in Ravenna in 456 CE.

    - To round them all up, I'll conclude with another line of my ancestry, named Auvergnon. Obviously a reference to the region itself.

    Mawdesley - As far as I can trace, no one was actually from there in recent history, but the earliest example did come from Lancashire.

    Basford - They weren’t from Nottingham, but Essex.

    Chew - This is actually another place in Lancashire.

    This is all I have.
