Spiffy Mortimer may seem austere, but the friendly tortoise mayor Tortimer from Nintendo’s Animal Crossing certainly adds a cute spin on the name. Mortimer is a masculine name of Old French origin. Mortimer began its etymological journey as a Norman surname, a habitational name for those hailing from the village of Mortemer in Normandy. While Mortimer is known to mean “dead sea,” it’s theorized that “dead” is intended to convey “stagnant” and that this place name described an area with a still pond. Unexpectedly a water-inspired baby name, Mortimer exudes serenity while upholding a sophisticated air.
