Individual surnames originated for the purpose of more specific identification. The four primary sources for second names were: occupation, location, father's name and personal characteristics. The surname Luttrell appears to be occupational in origin, and is believed to be associated with the French, meaning, "one who played and made a lute." Different spellings of the same original surname are a common occurrence. Dictionaries of surnames indicate probably spelling variations. The most prominent variations of Luttrell are Lutrels, Lutrell, Luttrells, Luttrel, Luttrells, and Littrell.

The Luttrell Coat of Arms was drawn by an heraldic artist from information officially recorded in ancient heraldic archives. Documentation for the Luttrell Coat of Arms design can be found in "Burke's General Armory." Heraldic artists of old developed their own unique language to describe an individual Coat of Arms.
