English: topographic name from Anglo-Norman French, Middle English castel ‘castle, fortified building or set of buildings’, especially the residence of a feudal lord (from Late Latin castellum, a diminutive of castrum ‘fort, Roman walled city’). The name would also have denoted a servant who lived and worked at such a place, or someone who had an obligation to provide services or rent to a castle.
