Meaning, Origin, Etymology
English surname Abbot is of patronymic in origin, belonging to that category of names derived from the personal name of the father of the original bearer. In this case, the name simply denotes “the son of Abraham”, from the nickname “Abb” and the diminutive “Abb-ot”, a popular name choice in the thirteenth century. The personal name Abb has strong associations with the Bible, and is derived from the ancient Hebrew term meaning “father of many.” Alternatively, the surname Abbot is of occupational origin, based on the work, trade or profession of the original bearer. Early Latin examples, such as Alfwoldus Abbas (abbot from 1111 to 1117), are names of actual holders of the monasterial office of Abbot.
