Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived in a village, as opposed to an outlying farm or hamlet, from Middle English toun (Old English tūn, which originally meant ‘fence’ and then ‘enclosure’, although the sense ‘settlement, village’ was already firmly established in the Old English period).
