Bedeutung der Nachname Menop
The origin of the name Menop can be located in the county of Bathmen, at the spot where coaches used to cross the river Schipbeek. Here, the coach drivers had to encourage their horses and direct them to get to the other side of the river (the dutch word 'mennen' is something like to steer, and to encourage). Since a longe time a big house is situated here with the name Menop. Members of the Menop family probably have lived and worked in the farm nearby.
