||Re: My surname origin by Marc
Thank you for the response. A professor of linguistics at Ohio State University reached the same conclusion 30 years ago; but failed to state the basis for his conclusion. Lambillotte is a fairly common name in parts of Belgium and the name can be found in some church documents back to the 11th century. The "Lam" part fits the germanic 'land' or 'territory', but what is the meaning of 'illotte' or 'billotte'? The 'otte' can be used as to connote a diminutive or female (As in Charlotte vs Charles).
Not saying it is not a derivation of 'Lambert', but have nothing to support that.
