    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Lancaster in northwestern England, which is recorded as Loncastre in 1086. The place takes its name from the river Lune + Old English ceaster ‘city, Roman fortification’ (from Latin castra ‘legionary camp’). The river name is probably British, perhaps related to Gaelic slán ‘healthy’, ‘salubrious’.
