The Tuttle surname comes from the Old Norse personal name "žorkell," made up of the elements "žórr," or "Thor," name of the Scandinavian god of thunder and "ketill," meaning "a cauldron." In northern England, the name came directly via Scandinavian settlers, whereas in the South this name arrived with the Normans. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the Old English expression "tot-hyll" as in "dweller by the look-out hill." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
