The Stiteler surname is generally thought to derive from the Middle English word "stott," meaning a "steer," or "bull." As such it was likely originally an occupational
name for a cattleman, or perhaps a nickname
. Some instances of the name in Scotland
may have come from the Viking name Stoti, which likely arrived with the 9th century Norse colonization of Strathclyde and Aberdeenshire.
