Place Name: Abbottsfield
Feature Type (Yea Approved): Neighbourhood (1964), Park (1984), Road (1972).
Name Origins: Commemorative
English: nickname from Middle English abbod, abbot, abbat, ‘abbot’, presumably given to a lay person who behaved like one. There is no evidence that men with this surname were servants of abbots, though it remains a theoretical possibility (Oxford Dictionary of Family Names in Britain and Ireland).
English and Scottish: from Middle English abbott ‘abbot’ (Old English abbod) or Old French abet ‘priest’. Both the Old English and the Old French term are derived from Late Latin abbas ‘priest’ (genitive abbatis), from Greek abbas, from Aramaic aba ‘father’. This was an occupational name for someone employed in the household of or on the lands of an abbot, and perhaps also a nickname for a sanctimonious person thought to resemble an abbot.
