The Admire Coat of Arms illustrated above was drawn by an heraldic artist from information officially recorded in ancient heraldic archives., specifically Rietstap Armorial General. The description of the Admire Coat of Arms translates to "Blue: a gold lion, tongue and claws red, looking at a gold sun issuing from the left upper corner." The surname, Admire, appears to be occupational in origin, and is believed to be associated with the French and English, meaning, "one who is a commander, a chief." The name Admire may have been "Atmeyer" in Germany.
Our first known Admire ancestor was George Admire, Sr. who is believed to have come from Germany and was naturalized in Rowan County, North Carolina on September 24,1766.
