Thanks to Wyatt Earp, we think of Wyatt as a distinctive American Old West name when, in fact, it derives from an old Franco-Norman surname, itself originating from an Olde English personal male name “Wīgheard.” The name is made up of Old Anglo-Saxon elements “WIG”, meaning “war, battle” and “ear” meaning “hard, firm, solid, not soft”, derived from the Proto-Germanic root *hard- meaning “severe, cruel, very hard”. In other words, Wyatt is a badass. It's almost like Wyatt Earp was meant to have such a name - as Sigmund Freud said, our names are perhaps a "piece of our soul". In any case, Wyatt was a name made famous to Americans by Wyatt Earp (for more on Wyatt Earp, see the historical references below).
