Tippett Family HistoryRecorded as Tipp, Tippe, diminutives Tippell, Tippett, Tipping, patronymics Tipples and Tippins, and possibly others, this is a medieval English surname. There are two possible origins. The first is a nickname and one of the many which in some extraordinary way and over several centuries originated from the ancient names Theobald and Theodore. It is difficult to explain, particulary from a distance of over a thousand years and three changes in language, as to how Theobald became Tebb, and then Tibb, and finally Tipp, but it happened! Another explanation at least for some of the nameholders is that like the surname Tipper, this surname may have described a maker of steel tips for arrows.
