This name derives from the English “butty”, shortened from of “buttered”, meaning “spread with butter”, from the Old English “butere”, meaning (butter). The name means companion, also the form of an older dialect term meaning “workmate”, associated with coal mining. Itself believed derived from “booty fellow” (buttered) (1530).
