Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places called Wollaston. Those in Northamptonshire (Domesday Book Wilavestone) and Worcestershire (first recorded in 1275 as Wollaueston) are named from the genitive case of the Old English personal name Wulflāf (composed of the elements wulf ‘wolf’ + lāf ‘relic’) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. The first element of the one in Shropshire (Domesday Book Willavestune) is the genitive case of the Old English personal name Wīglāf (composed of the elements wīg ‘war’ + lāf ‘relic’).
