The surname Tooth is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is derived from the Old English "toth," meaning "tooth," and was most likely originally bestowed as a nickname on someone with a prominent tooth or teeth.

Tooth Early Origins



The surname Tooth was first found in London, where Hugo cum dentibus ("Hugo with the tooth") was living in 1102. The nickname origin of the name makes it likely that several branches of the Tooth family emerged independently in different areas during the Middle Ages.

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: Perseverantia palman obtinebit
Motto Translation: Perseverance will obtain the reward.
