In Reply to: Re: The Name Rial by Rial F. Coleman of 283

Rial, the surname, is quite common in the region of Galicia, Spain, an area with many rias (fjords) where (so I'm told by my in-laws) Rial meant 'de la ria' or 'from the fjord.' I married a Rial, hence our e-mail name is made up from Armstsong and Rial.
