What does NOTTOMH stand for?

Not off the top of my head

NOTTOMH stands for “Not off the top of my head”. This just means that you can’t recall or answer something immediately at that moment. It’s a phrase often seen in online chats or text conversations when someone can’t come up with an answer on the spot.

Even though it can be handy, NOTTOMH isn’t a widely popular acronym. There are shorter ones like IDK or DK that serve the same purpose and are quicker to type. So you won’t see NOTTOMH being thrown around that much.

Interestingly, it’s usually the older crowd who use this acronym. If you ever find this in your inbox, chances are it’s from your Aunt Martha, Uncle Bob, or your grandparents. They might just be trying to keep up with the digital lingo and have fun with it.
