    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: German Math.

    English: perhaps an occupational name derived from Middle English flitten ‘to convey, transport, remove (something)’. Reaney and Wilson's suggested derivation from Middle English fliter (Old English flītere) ‘wrangler, scold’, seems doubtful. This would give flighter in modern English (i.e. with a long vowel, compare Flight ), whereas the -tt- in the surname forms implies a short vowel.
