Mottram Name Meaning
English: habitational name from either of two places in Cheshire. It is possible that the name originally denoted a building where village assemblies were held, named in Old English as ‘meeting-house’, from (ge)mot ‘meeting’ + ærn ‘house’, ‘hall’. Other possibilities are that the name derives from Old English (ge)mot-rum ‘meeting space’, or (ge)mot-treum ‘assembly trees’.
