Origins and connections

What is the origin of the name Tittle?
Does it derive from a nickname given to a talkative person (as in tittle-tattle) or to someone who was small? Do you have any stories or theories? Please post your comments.
Are we all one big family?
Given that Tittle is quite an unusual name, could it be that we had a common ancestor? Or could the name Tittle have emerged seperately in several places. If the latter is the case, then there could be more than one origin. What do you think?

    Some people think that the Tittle surname may have its origins in the Cheshire village of Tittenley (which was often known as Titley). Tittenley was formerly in the parish of Audlem, but was transferred to Shropshire in 1895.

    In the Frodsham area of Cheshire the name is sometimes spelled "Tickle" in the parish registers of the 18th and 19th centuries.

    I am not a Tittle, but I do have many Tittles in my family tree.
