    Name Meaning

    English (Suffolk and Norfolk): variant of Toothill, primarily a Yorkshire habitational name from any of various places called with Old English tōt-hyll ‘lookout hill’, primarily Toothill in Rastrick (Yorkshire) and perhaps Tootle in Longridge (Lancashire), but also Tuttle Hill in Nuneaton (Warwickshire), and Tothill (Lincolnshire). There are several further minor placenames of this type that may have contributed to the surname. Also occasionally from Tottenhill (Norfolk), which derives from the Old English personal name Totta (genitive Tottan) + Old English hyll ‘hill’.
