Meaning & History

Possibly derived from the German cognate Bertram, from the Germanic elements beraht (meaning "bright"), and hrabn (meaning "raven"). Mostly derived from the Ancient Germanic name of Berahthram akin to the Germanic elements, it is a descendant surname of Bartram and is a rare surname given throughout the United States in the 20th century. One famous bearer of this name is Alabama-born comedian, actor and voice actor Maxwell Emmett Buttram (Maxwell E. Buttram, or Pat Buttram, 1915 - 1994), who is most notable for playing the role as Mr. Haney from the CBS television series Green Acres, and voice acting as the Sheriff of Nottingham from Disney's Robin Hood (1973) and Lester's Possum Park Emcee from A Goofy Movie (1995).
