The Stotts surname is generally thought to derive from the Middle English word "stott," meaning a "steer," or "bull." As such it was likely originally an occupational name for a cattleman, or perhaps a nickname. Some instances of the name in Scotland may have come from the Viking name Stoti, which likely arrived with the 9th century Norse colonization of Strathclyde and Aberdeenshire.

The surname Stotts was first found in Yorkshire, but by the 15th century some of the family name had moved north to Aberdeenshire where Andrew Stott was a Burgess there in 1490. Later, Margaret Stote held a family seat in Dolphinstoun in Lanarkshire in 1675, and Alexander Stote held a family seat in Maynes in Balyeordie in Renfrewshire in 1689.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Stot, Stott and others.
