Name Meaning

1 English, Scottish, and Irish: from Middle English whit ‘white’, hence a nickname for someone with white hair or an unnaturally pale complexion. In some cases it represents a Middle English personal name, from an Old English byname, Hwīt(a), of this origin. As a Scottish and Irish surname it has been widely used as a translation of the many Gaelic names based on bán ‘white’ ( see Bain 1) or fionn ‘fair’ ( see Finn 1). There has also been some confusion with Wight .2 Translated form of cognate and equivalent names in other languages, such as German Weiss , French Blanc , Polish Białas ( see Bialas ), etc.
