Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Anketill, Ankatell, Anketil, Ankatel, Anchetill, Anchetell and many more.

The Antle Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Vade ad formicam
Motto Translation: Go to the ant.
