Name Meaning

Said to be of French origin, this name is associated in the early 18th century with MD and subsequently with NC and SC. If it is French, it is probably a Huguenot name. It may be an altered form of French Petit , or possibly of French Pottet, which is from a diminutive of pot ‘pot’, in any of several senses: a metonymic occupational name for a potter, a nickname for a market trader, or a nickname for a rotund individual.
