Reply to: surname COULTER by James Colombo
One of my namebooks has it as English, meaning a herd of colts ...it's also in my Irish namebook as deriving from Ó Coltaráin which is basically a farming instrument, a plowshare ...I think that is probably more accurate than the "colt" explanation ...even in English.
