    Name Meaning

    English (Durham and Northumberland): habitational name from any of the three places called Embleton (Northumberland, Durham, and Cumberland). Embleton in Northumberland arises either from the Old English personal name Æmele or Old English emel ‘caterpillar’ + dūn ‘hill’, while Embleton in Durham is from the genitive plural of Old English elm ‘elm’ + denu ‘valley’. Embleton in Cumberland may derive from the Old English personal name Ēanbald + tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’ or from Old English emel ‘caterpillar’ + tūn.
