Name Meaning

English: habitational name from the city of Nottingham in the East Midlands. The placename means ‘the homestead of the people of Snot’, from the Old English personal name Snot + the groupname suffix -ingas (genitive -inga-) + hām ‘village, homestead’. The initial S- was lost in the 12th century, due to the influence of Anglo-Norman French (the combination sn- is alien to French).
