Origin or Ethnicity
Its source is plat, an Old French name meaning "Flat."
This was a surname given to slender people. In 19th-century America it might have been given as a personal name to baby boys with the Platte River in mind.
That river was named by early French explorers, and the Oregon Trail followed its meandering course across the Nebraska prairie toward the mountain passes.
