Mellor is a surname of English origin. Variant spellings include Meller, Mellers, Melliar and Mellors.

It is derived from the names of places including Mellor, Greater Manchester and Mellor, Lancashire, which in turn come from ancient words moel ‘bare’ + bre ‘hill’.[1]

The surname also appears on early census rolls in Dorset, where it may have a separate derivation from a Flemish name.[2]
