The Mintoe surname was a habitational name taken from a place so named, in Shropshire. The placed name Minton is derived from the Welsh word "mynydd" meaning "hill," and the Old English word "tun," meaning "enclosure," or "settlement." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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: Pro Deo et patria
Motto Translation: For God and country.
