Gatt (surname)

Gatt is a surname of Scottish as well as Southeast German origin, which can also be found in Malta.

In Bavarian speaking areas of Germany and Austria the name may derive from the Middle High German word gate (cf. German Gatte: husband, male spouse) for "companion", whereas in Scotland a derivation from the surname Gault or the Middle English gate meaning road, thoroughfare or passage, referring to a family's residence near a main road, is possible. As a Maltese surname it may be derived from the Italian ″gatto″ (engl.: cat) or the female given name Agata.

  • Austin Gatt (born 1953), Maltese politician
  • Clifford Gatt Baldacchino (born 1988), Maltese international footballer
