    The word is SURNAME not surename and all SURNAME's come from Languages not countries.

    Both can be found in variations in English, German and Dutch(which is only slightly different than German and was once called Low German)

    Hill is a surname of English language origin, meaning "a person who lived on or near a hill", and Micheal can be from any lanaguge it is orginially taken from being heard from biblical stories where the influence was the church and the stories heard in church each week......as surnames are at most 1000 years old and chosen so so people could be identified and taxed.....no surname tells you the religion of the person or where in the world they originated, just the labanague that they spoke, heard or was influenced by, so it has zero to do with genealogy, it is word history only

    I'm not sure about Hill but I'm sure that Micheal could be Jewish. Michael is also a well known Christian last name in the Middle East. It is usually the name of a great grandpa than it used as a surname for Christians in the Middle East especially in Iraq

    Hill is English. In dutch it would be "Heuvel", in german "Hügel"

    Michael can be anything, but it would be three syllables outside English. Mi - cha - el (ch like in loch)

    Hill = English (in Dutch it would be Bergh)

    Michael = Jewish and English also occurs Dutch and German. Old Testament in origin.
