Name Meaning


from the Middle English personal names Wiot or Wiet. These are often pet forms of Wy, from ancient Germanic Wido (see Guy , compare Wyand 1). Wy is the usual Norman French form of the name; the Parisian French form is Guy. Wiot was also used as a diminutive of William . As a surname Wyot(t) became Wyatt during the 16th century.

in Suffolk, this is sometimes a variant of Wyard, from the Middle English personal name Wiard, which is generally from Old English Wīgheard, which is composed of the elements wīg ‘battle’ + heard ‘bold, brave’. Occasionally it may be from Old French Wiard, ancient Germanic Withard (see Viard ).
