Name Meaning

English: patronymic from the Middle English (Old French) personal name Ive + -son (see Ives ). The main source of the modern name appears to be a family from Langcliffe in Giggleswick (Yorkshire), though in Durham, the name may be a variant of Iveston, a habitational name from Iveston in Lanchester (Durham). The placename derives from the Old English personal name Ifa or Ifi + Old English stān ‘stone’.
