Meaning & History

Tippetts Recorded as Tipp, Tippe, diminutives Tippell, Tippets, Tipping, patronymics Tippett, Tipples, Tippins, and possibly others, this is a medieval English surname.
There are two possible origins. The first is a nickname and one of the many which in some extraordinary way and over several centuries originated from the ancient names Theobald and Theodore.

Another explanation at least for some of the name-holders is that like the surname Tipper, this surname may have described a maker of steel tips for arrows.
