Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the many minor places called from hills where the snow lay long (Old English snāw ‘snow’ + dūn ‘hill’). In Yorkshire, the name is either from High and Low Snowden in Askwith (Yorkshire) or Snowden Hill in Hunshelf, while in Devon the name is probably from Snowdon in Buckfastleigh or Snowdon in Rattery. The precise sources of the name in other counties have not been identified. Snow End in Anstey (Hertfordshire), recorded as Snowdon in 1362, is a possibility but it is not known if it gave rise to a surname. Compare Sneddon .
