Rout Name Meaning

English (now chiefly East Anglia): probably a topographic name for someone who lived by a patch of rough ground, from a hypothetical Old English word ru(we)t or ruhet, derivatives of ruh ‘rough’, ‘overgrown’. Compare Rauch. There are places called Ruffet(t) in Surrey and Sussex which are thought to have this origin. German: Swabian variant of Roth 1. Probably an Americanized spelling of German Rauth. Indian (northern states): Hindu (Rajput, Jat, Maratha) and Sikh name meaning ‘prince’, from Sanskrit rajaputra (from raja ‘king’ + putra ‘son’). In India this is a variant of a name more commonly spelled Ravat or Raut. The Jats have a clan called Ravat.
