Clouthier is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. It is a name for a person employed making or selling nails, particularly those used for horse shoes. The surname is derived from the Old French word clou, which in turn derives from the Latin word clavus, which both mean nail.

The surname Clouthier was first found in Normandy where they held a family seat.

A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Cloutier, Clouthier, Clouther, Clothier, Clouter, Cluthier, Cloethier, Cloetier and many more.

Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Clouthier or a variant listed above: Zacharie Cloutier II settled in Quebec in about 1630 and may have been the first immigrant of the name from Normandy, his son Rene married Barbe Aymard in 1672.
