Name Meaning

English (Durham): occupational name of Norman origin from Old French botonier ‘button maker’, from bo(u)ton ‘knob, lump’, specialized to mean ‘button’.

In some cases also German (mainly Bütner): very rare variant of Büttner (see Buettner ) and, in North America, probably also an altered form of this.
