Origins of surname

This is one of several different surnames which have their origins in ancient words meaning 'brave in battle'. Wyatt is of Anglo-Saxon origin, derived from the personal names Wiot, Wyot or Gyot, originally Wigheard, which is made up of wig = 'war' and heard = 'hardy', 'brave' or 'strong'.

Early records

The name first figures in Jersey records in the first decade of the 19th century, and it appears that there were two or more, probably unrelated, Wyatt immigrants at about the same time.

The name is also found in Guernsey.
