Name Meaning

English: variant of Douthwaite, a habitational name from Dowthwaite in Cumbria or Dowthwaite Hall in North Yorkshire. The first is from the Old Norse personal name Dúfa + Old Norse þveit ‘clearing’; the second is from the Old Irish personal name Dubhan + Old Norse þveit. The elliptic form of the surname probably reflects the local pronunciation of the place names.
