English (most common in the West Country): nickname from Middle English swete ‘sweet’, ‘pleasant’, ‘agreeable’. The Old English bynames Swet(a) (masculine) and Swete (feminine) derived from this word survived into the early Middle English period, and may also be sources of the surname. Translation of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Suess. In New England, a translation of French Ledoux.
