    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of numerous places so called. The vast majority, including those in Cambridgeshire, Cumbria, Dumfries, Durham, Kent, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northumberland, Oxfordshire, Sussex, and Yorkshire are named from Old English denu ‘valley’ (see Dean 1) + tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’. An isolated example in Northamptonshire appears in the Domesday Book as Dodintone meaning ‘enclosure, settlement associated with Dodda or Dudda’.
