The surname Botner was an occupational name for a cooper or a barrel maker. The name was derived from the Old German word "bute," which means "cask."

Early Origins of the Botner family


The surname Botner was first found in Bohemia, where the family came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society.

The Botner 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: Virtute foris prudentia domi
Motto Translation: By virtue of prudence at home and abroad
