MINET Family HistoryRecorded in many spelling forms all quite rare and including: Mignot, Minet, Mynett and Mynott, this is an English surname, but of pre-medieval French origins. Probably introduced by the Normans after the invasion of 1066, it is derived from the word 'mignot', meaning dainty. As such it was originally either a baptismal name of endearment, or later a nickname surname. Humour in the Middle Ages was very robust, and many nicknames, most of which were given to males, were the reverse of the literal meaning.
