| Background: This Scottish name is habitational from a place in the parish of Gamrie, near Banff. The place is situated on a headland affording some sheltered anchorage, and is said to get its name from Middle English true hope; however, when first recorded in 1296 it already appears as Trup, so it is more likely to be of the same origin as Thorpe and other names of this origin.
Variations: Troup, Tromp, Trout, Troop, Tropp, Troy, Troupe, Troia, Trapp, Topp, Grof, Gropp, Roup, Groat, Troup, Grosh, Rous, Stoup, Coup, Dropp.
