    Name Meaning

    English (South western England):

    metonymic occupational name for an armorer, probably first derived from Old French cotel ‘coat of mail’; later examples may also derive from Old French cotel, coutel ‘short knife or dagger’ (from Late Latin cultellus), used to denote a cutler.

    perhaps also a habitational name from written forms of any of the three places in Devon named Cotleigh or Cotley.
