Name Meaning

Northern English: habitational name from any of various places so called. One in Northumbria is probably from the Old English personal name Æmele + dūn ‘hill’; one in County Durham was earlier Elmedene, from Old English elm ‘elm’ + denu ‘valley’. Embleton in Cumbria is probably from the personal name Ēanbald + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’.
