Name Meaning

English: metonymic occupational name for a cattleman, from Middle English stott ‘steer’, ‘bullock’. The term was also occasionally used in Middle English of a horse or of a heifer (and so as a term of abuse for a woman), and these senses may also lie behind some examples of the surname.
