    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of numerous places in England called Stanton or Staunton, especially Stanton in Staffordshire and Staunton in Worcestershire, all named with Old English stān ‘stone’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. Most of the placenames come from their situation on stony ground, but in the case of Stanton Harcourt in Oxfordshire and Stanton Drew in Avon the reference is to the proximity of prehistoric stone monuments. The name has also sometimes been chosen by Ashkenazic Jews as an Americanized form of various like-sounding Jewish surnames. This surname has also long been established in Ireland (especially Mayo).
