Origins of surname

This is a name found predominantly in the Manche and Seine Maritime departments of Normandy. It either comes from the Germanic lioto, derived from a word for 'people', or it is a shortened form of Eliot, a diminuitive of the forename Elie. We prefer the latter explanation because it is difficult to see how a word meaning 'people' could have been used to distinguish one person from another.

An alternative view is that it is a variant of Lion, derived from the animal. If this is true, the spelling distinguishes the Normandy family from the Bretons.

Early records

The name first appears in the St Martin register in 1762, with the baptism of Jean, son of Jean and Jeanne Payn. Another family appeared in about 1864, when Victor Pierre Francois Liot married Mary Ellen Barrot at the Wesleyan Chapel in Grove Place.
