Nuttall Name Meaning

English: habitational name from some place named with Old English hnutu ‘nut’ + h(e)alh ‘nook’, ‘recess’. In some cases this may be Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, but the surname is common mainly in Lancashire, and a Lancashire origin is therefore more likely. Nuttall in Bury, Lancashire, was earlier Notehogh, from Old English hnutu + hoh ‘hill-spur’.
