Tooth Family HistoryThere are two probable pre-medieval origins for this unusual name, both being Anglo-Saxon and both being descriptive nicknames. The first from the word "Tot" and relates to an actor who played the part of "death" in the medieval theatres and travelling pageants. The second is a nickname of endearment and was originally "Toto", a word used to describe a Grandfather or Elder of the family. It is also true that in England some name holders were given the nickname "Tooth or Dent" which Stuck as a surname, not because they didn't have teeth but, because they had retained their teeth, in whole or part, in an age when most people were toothless by twenty.
