Bottrell Name Meaning
English: probably of Norman origin, a habitational name from Les Bottereaux in Eure, France, apparently so named from being infested with toads. The place name is recorded in the late 12th century in the Latin form Boterelli, from a diminutive of Old French bot ‘toad’ (of Germanic origin). It has also been suggested that the name originated as a Norman nickname, from Old Norman French bottereau ‘toad’, or as an occupational name for a worker in a buttery, Middle English butterer.
