English (Norfolk): nickname from a reduced form of Middle English
apostel ‘apostle’ (Old English apostol, via Latin from
Greek apostolos ‘messenger’, ‘delegate’, from
apostellein ‘to dispatch’). As a nickname, this may have been
used for someone who had played the part of one of the twelve apostles
in a play or pageant. However, the word was also used
as a personal name. Compare
