Name Meaning

1 Norman, English: locative name from Les Bottereaux (Eure, Normandy), a place-name which apparently meant ‘the toads’. The surname is found in both a singular form Boterel and a plural form Boterels, Botereaus, which has developed to Buttress. Some of the post-medieval bearers may belong under (2).

2 Norman, English: occupational name from Anglo-Norman French * boterel, a diminutive form of Old French * boter ‘an officer who looks after the (wine) butts’. Both terms are derivatives of Old French butte, bote ‘wine-butt, cask’.
