Flett Name Meaning
Scottish: probably a habitational name originating in the Orkneys, from a place in the parish of Delting, Shetland, named with an Old Norse term denoting a strip of arable land or pasture. On the other hand it may be from the Old Norse byname Fljótr ‘swift’, ‘speedy’. Compare Fleet 2. The surname is now most common around Aberdeen and in Orkney.
