The word "mote" means a speck or a very small particle. The word comes from the Middle English "mot" taken from the Old English. An older and archaic meaning was might or may. It was taken in this sense from the Middle English word "moten" derived from the Old English word "motan".

A mote can be defined as a tiny piece of something.

Mote is also a popular surname, but the definition of mote still remains a very small particle. It is used when referring to very small particles of sand, granular material or dust. In next generation electronics tiny smart dust sensors are referred to as motes
