About This Name


While the origin of the name 'Elton' is definitely Old English, its meaning is not concrete. One theory suggests that this name could have come from the Old English name “Aethelflaed', whose meaning is 'noble beauty', with the added suffix 'tun' meaning 'place or enclosure'. Another theory suggests that this name could have come from the words 'Ella', a name, plus 'tun', land, meaning 'Ella's land'. It could also have come from the Old English words 'ael', which means 'eel', and 'tun', meaning 'place or enclosure', referring to a place where eel's were caught.
