Tom Holland is a British actor and dancer. He plays Peter Parker / Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Tom is the son of Nicola Elizabeth (Frost), a photographer, and Dominic Holland (Dominic Anthony Holland), a comedian.

Tom’s patrilineal line most likely leads back to Frederick George Holland, who was born, c. 1832, in Lancashire, England, and to Frederick’s wife, Mary Sheffield, who was born, c. 1839, in Cumberland, England.

Tom’s paternal grandfather is John Charles Anthony Holland (the son of James Edward Holland and Rosalie Marshall). John was born on the Isle of Man. James was the son of Charles Holland, who was from Chester, England, and of Sarah Campbell, who was from Armagh, Ireland. Rosalie was born in Yorkshire, England, the daughter of John Marshall and Adelaide Anne/Annie Howarth.

Tom’s paternal grandmother is named Teresa Quigley. Teresa was born in Tipperary, Ireland.

Tom’s maternal grandparents are Robert Walter Frost (whose parents likely were Walter Frost and Fanny E. Brown) and Christina Winifred Berry (whose parents were possibly Francis Berry and Lilian Higgs).

He reminds me of a really young Orlando Bloom.

It’s a variation of the Irish surname Mulholland

“Holland” can also be a Jewish surname. Tom Holland seems fairly Jewish to me, although I know he isn’t.

I dunno..

I think the most famous “Holland” is Polish director Agnieszka Holland, whose father was Jewish.

François is descended from Bon Hollande and Marie Lemaire in the 1600s.

But that’s cheating, he has an “e”.

As Wikipedia said: “Holland” is (mainly) a toponomical name that just indicates that the first bearer (right word?) of that surname once came from the region of Holland. Toponomical names are common with Jews (Landau/er, Wiener, Homburger, Marienthal, Weininger etc.) – because they often were travelling salespeople or migrated, but not specific Jewish.

Holland has been an important surname in the British Isles since the Middle Ages. The Holland family were nobility

Holland in English comes from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘holt’ which means essentially a wooded area. Hurst is another word in English that means wood and survives in placenames as well.

Yeah interesting…especially how he is so pale and redhead but he has small brown eyes. Cute mix btw…Some Italians have that look (Michael Cera I believe).

Michael Cera is half Sicilian and half Anglo, so that mix is probably responsible for Michael’s look, which is a little different than Tom’s.
