Tait History

The surname Tait was originally a nickname.

According to Venerable Bede, in his book ‘The Ecclesiastical History of the English People’, Ethelberga, who was daughter of Ethelbert, king of Kent, she was also known as ‘Tate’ (feminie), and there are nine indivduals recorded as being called ‘Tata’ (masculine) in Walter de Gray Birch’s Cartularium Saxonicum.

Tate is also a Yiddish (Jewish) word meaning ‘father’.
