The surname Mickle comes from the Middle Scottish word "meikle," "meikle" and "mekill" which meant "great," or "large." Contrary to what one may think, It is generally believed that the name was not a patronymic variant of the personal name Michael. Today, Meikle Loch is an inland loch in Aberdeenshire; Meikle Millyea, a mountain in South West Scotland; and Meikle Pap, a mountain in North East Scotland. Meikle Earnock is a suburb in the south of Hamilton, Scotland,

Mickle Early Origins



The surname Mickle was first found in Liddesdale, where one of the first records of the name was Willelmus Mykl from the parish of Fyvy who was excommunicated in 1382. A few years later, Robertus Mykyl was a juror on assize in 1389. William Mikil (Mukill) was a juror on an inquest at Narn in 1431.

Motto

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: Vincit veritas
Motto Translation: Truth conquers.
