    Name Meaning

    English: from Middle English white, wit (Old English hwīt ‘white’), hence a nickname for someone with white hair or a pale complexion. In some cases it is perhaps from a Middle English survival of the Old English personal name Hwīta, a short form of names in Hwīt- (from hwīt ‘white’). The name may also be topographic, referring to someone who lived by a bend or curve in a river or road (from Old English wiht ‘bend’), the source of the placename of Great Whyte in Ramsey, Huntingdonshire (compare Wight ). This name is also a variant of Wight . The surname White is also very common among African Americans.Irish and Scottish: adopted for any of several Irish and Scottish Gaelic names based on bán ‘white, fair’ (see Bain 1, McElwain ) or fionn ‘fair’ (see Finn 1). The English surname has been Gaelicized in Ireland as de Faoite.Americanized form (translation into English) of various European surnames meaning ‘white’, for example German Weiss , French Blanc , Polish Białas (see Bialas ), Slovenian Belec , or any other synonymous Slavic surname beginning with Bel-, Bev-, Biel- or Bil-.
