Name Meaning

English: habitational name perhaps from Lippingcotts in Culmstock (Devon), though it is possible that this place is named after a bearer of the surname, and so the surname may be from a lost or unidentified place, probably named with Old English cot ‘cottage, hut, shelter’ as the final element.
