The origins of the meaning Sproul are disputed by many, but we know that it is from Scotland and many believe that it means Omnipotent One, Alpha and Omega, or in general just God.

In Scotland, those with the name Sproul were almost worshiped. They were never royalty but were great advisers. People went to them as it they were oracles. When the Sproul clan came to Scotland from Svalbard as kings and gods, they were persecuted until they fought off they vikings all on their own. They were then moved up in the township from a persecuted clan to basically royalty
