ARNETT Family HistoryThis interesting surname, with variant spellings Arnet, Arnot, Arnott and Arnatt, is either a Scottish locational name from Arnot in the parish of Portmoak in Kinross-shire, deriving from the Gaelic "ornacht" meaning "barley", or from the Old French personal names "Arnaut, Ernaut, Hernaut", coming from the Old Germanic given names "Arnald, Arnold, Arnolt", meaning "eagle-power". The surname dates back to the late 13th Century (see below), and further recordings include: Michael de Arnoth, who is mentioned as having possession of lands in 1284 (Memorials of the Browns of Fordell), and David Arnot of Fyfe, who rendered homage in 1296 (Calendar of Documents Relating to Scotland preserved in the Public Record Office).
