NOTT Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Knott, Nott, Note, Nuth, and the diminutive Nottle, this English medieval surname has three possible origins. The first is as a nickname for a thickset person, from the pre 7th century Olde English "cnotta" meaning a knot or swelling, this type of descriptive and sometimes robust, nickname surname being highly popular in the medieval period. The second, and possibly the more likely for most nameholders being from the pre 6th century Scandinavian personal name "Knutr".
