OATES Family History

This interesting name, with variant spellings Oade, Oaten, Oat(es), Ott and Otten, derives from the Medieval English given name Ode in which personal names of several different origins have coalesced. These name include the old English Oda and the Old Norse Odda (from the Old English "ord" and the Old Norse "Odd", point of a spear); the Old French Odes and Otes with diminutives Odon and Otton, and the Old German Odo, Otto meaning "riches". Odo was the name borne by the archbishop of Bayeux, half-brother of William the Conqueror, and the German Odo or Otto was a hereditary name in the Saxon ruling house.
