Frederick Charles Dart (1876-1948)

Origin of Surname

The fact that Death is considered a variation of Dart gives a clue to its possible origins. It may be of early medieval English origin, a surname for a person who played the part of a figurative representation of "Death" in a medieval mystery play. Other such names that survive today are Angel and Life. The source is the Middle English word "deeth", meaning death.

An alternative origin is French, from the place called "Ath", with the fused preposition "de", in Flanders. The surname from this source has a variety of forms not just in England, including D'Eath, D'Eathe, De Ath, D'Aeth, De Att and De Atta.
