Caton Name Meaning
English: habitational name from either of two places called Caton, in Derbyshire and Lancashire. The former is probably named with the Old English personal name or byname Cada (see Cade) + Old English tun ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’; the latter is from the Old Norse byname Káti (see Cates) + tun. English and French: from a pet form of Catlin.
