The Pottier surname comes from the Old French word "pot," meaning a "drinking vessel;" as such, it is thought to have been an occupational name for a maker of drinking or storage vessels.

Pottier Early Origins



The surname Pottier was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat at Courcy, an ancient castle and dukedom that played such an important role in the defense of northern and eastern France. The house of Potier would eventually be elevated to the Dukes of Gevres, and the Dukes of Tresmes, and Gevres, who held a family seat in Brittany.
