Origin of last name

FRASER : 1: Scottish: apparently a nickname from Anglo-Norman French fraser(e) fresere ‘strawberry plant’. Fresel and Frisel from Anglo-Norman French fresel ‘strawberry’ are early variants of the Fraser surname the modern Gaelicized form of which is Friseal. See Frizzell. The crest on the Scottish family's coat of arms takes the form of a strawberry plant but its antiquity is unknown. Claims of a habitational derivation in particular from a place called la Frézelière in Anjou (France) are attractive but they lack verifiable evidence.2: Americanized form of one or more similar (like-sounding) Jewish surnames.
