Halton Name Meaning

English (mainly Lancashire): habitational name from any of several places named Halton, usually from Old English h(e)alh ‘nook’, ‘hollow’ + tun ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. Halton in Cheshire, however, is possibly named from an Old English hathel ‘heathery place’ + tun, and Halton in Northumberland from an Old English haw ‘look out’ + hyll ‘hill’ + tun. Irish: altered form of O’Haltahan, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hUltacháin ‘descendant of Ultachán’, a diminutive of Ultach ‘Ulsterman’. This is a rare Fermanagh surname, which is sometimes Anglicized as Nolan.
