Witt Family HistoryThis most interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a variant of "White", which itself has two possible origins. Firstly, it may be a nickname given to someone with white hair or a pale complexion, from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "hwit", white, which is found in the Olde English personal name "Hwita". Secondly, it may have been a topographical name for "a dweller by a bend or curve" in a river or road, from the Olde English word "wiht", a derivative of "wican", to bend. The personal name "Whita" is recorded in the Domesday Book of Suffolk in 1086, while the surname itself first appears in the early 11th Century (see below).
