Mutton Name Meaning
English (chiefly Devon): nickname for someone thought to resemble a sheep (e.g. a gentle but unimaginative person), or metonymic occupational name for a shepherd, from Anglo-Norman French muto(u)n ‘sheep’ (Old French mouton, probably of Gaulish origin; compare Breton maout ‘sheep’).
