"BLUND. A Norman name common in
England and Normandy in the twelfth century,
from AN. bluiid, blond (med. Latin blundus),
the "blonde." Not from Norse blundr,
sleepy, as sometimes explained (Zachrfsson).
Hugh de Abirbuthenoth, who gifted the church
of Garuoch to the monastery of Arbroath in
1292, was commonly designated Hugo Blundus
or Le Blond, from the flaxen color of his
hair (Sc. Peer., i, p. 274). Sometime before
1200 Rodbert Blundus witnessed a charter by
Roger de Quenci (LSC., 36), and Adam
Blundus witnessed a confirmation charter by
the Chapter of Brechin c. 1212-18 (REB., n,
p. 259). John Blund who witnessed a charter
by Matilda, countess of Angus, c. 124243
(RAA., i, 49) is probably the John Blundus
who appears as a charter witness in Brechin
in 1267 (REB., i, 8). In 1296 a writ was
issued to the sheriff of Edinburgh for behalf
of John le Blund of Esseby (Bain, n, 832).
About 1340 William Blundus witnessed a
concession in favor of the monastery of Schon
(Scon, 167). Geoffrey Blund was the first
burgess of Inverness on record c. 1200 (Rec.
Inc., i, p. Iv) and the name seems to have
continued there at least to the sixteenth century
(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)
