    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Litton (Derbyshire, Dorset, Somerset and Yorkshire), Leyton (Essex), or perhaps Liddaton Green in Bentor or Leddon in Welcombe (both Devon). The Derbyshire and Yorkshire placenames probably derive from Old English hlith ‘slope’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. The Devon, Dorset, and Somerset places take their names from rivers named with Old English hlȳde ‘the loud one, noisy stream’ + Old English tūn. The Essex place takes its name from the river Lea (of uncertain origin) + Old English tūn.
