Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the various places so called. For the most part they derive from the Old English personal name Ella or Elli ( see Ellington ) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. One in Berkshire, however, gets its first element from the Old English female personal name Æðelflǣd (composed of the elements æðel ‘noble’ + flǣd ‘beauty’). One in Cambridgeshire has its first element from the personal name Æðelhēah (composed of the elements æðel ‘noble’ + hēah ‘high’). The place of this name in County Durham probably gets its first element from Old English ǣl ‘eel’.
