Name Meaning

English and Scottish: from Middle English fot ‘foot’ (Old English fōt), sometimes translated in medieval documents by Latin cum pede ‘with the foot’. Probably a nickname for someone with a deformity of the foot or with large feet.

English: occasionally perhaps from the rare Middle English personal name Fot, from Old Norse Fótr, originally a nickname with the same sense as 1 above.

English: topographic name for someone who lived at the foot of a hill.
