English: habitational name from Lenton in Lincolnshire, which is recorded as Lavintone in 1086, Lenton in Nottinghamshire, which is recorded as Lentone in 1086, or Lenton in Devon, which is recorded as Leynton in 1330. The Lincolnshire placename may derive from the Old English personal name Lāfa + Old English connective -ing- + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. The Nottinghamshire place takes its name from the river Leen + Old English tūn. The Devon placename derives from an uncertain initial element + Old English tūn.
