Wheate Early Origins



The surname Wheate was first found in Norfolk, where the name appeared in the mid-12th century. The Wheate name has several possible origins. The most obvious is that it is a metonymic occupational name and that the first bearer was a wheat farmer. Another possibility is that it was originally a nickname for someone who ate a lot of wheat or who bore some resemblance to wheat, perhaps in hair color. Still another possibility is that the name is completely unrelated to wheat, coming instead from the old English word hwoet, which meant active, bold or brave.
