English (northern and eastern England): habitational name from any of various places called Carlton (Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Durham, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, East Yorkshire, Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire) or Carleton (Cumberland, Lancashire, Norfolk, Yorkshire). All come from Old Norse karl ‘common man, peasant’ + Old English tūn ‘settlement’ (compare Charlton ). Places spelled Carl(e)ton (as opposed to Charlton) are in areas of Scandinavian settlement, mostly in northern England.
Irish (Antrim): variant of Carleton 2.
