"pit, ditch"

Pitt Origin and Meaning

The name Pitt is a boy's name of English origin meaning "pit, ditch".

Despite two distinguished surname-bearers — the great British statesman William Pitt and heartthrob Brad, this would be a tough name to pull off in first place. William Thackeray used it for two generations of baronets in his novel Vanity Fair, the Sir Pitt Crawleys.
