Dunton Name Meaning
English: habitational name from any of various places called Dunton. Most (for example those in Bedfordshire, Essex, Leicestershire, Norfolk, and Warwickshire) are named from Old English dun ‘hill’ (see Down 1) + tun ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. One in Buckinghamshire probably has as its first element the Old English personal name Dudda (see Dodd).
