An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name MacKitt is tied to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England. It comes from Kit, a diminutive of the name Christopher. After the Norman Conquest of 1066, Old English personal names declined in popularity to be replaced by the new Christian names that they brought with them. One of these was Christopher.

MacKitt Early Origins



The surname MacKitt was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
