Origin of the surname “Burt:”

 

The relatively ancient surname “Burt” is a derivative of the Anglo-Saxon word “beort,” which means illustrious.  In the old Saxon chronicles beort is synonymous with “alderman.”  It found its way into many Saxon names, eg. Albert, Egbert, Ethelbert, etc.  English forms: Burt, Byrt, and Bert.  German forms: Bert, Bertti.  French forms: Burt, Bert, Berteau, Berty.  Use in England dates to at least 1199 AD.
