    Name Meaning

    1 English (mainly West Midlands): habitational name from Peyton in Sussex, named the Old English personal name Pǣga + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, or from some other place similarly named. Peyton in Essex has probably not contributed; it has a quite different early etymology, and even in the 16th century it was still Pakenho or Patenhall.2 Irish (mainly County Donegal): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Peatáin ‘descendant of Peatán’, a pet form of the personal name Pádraig ( see Patrick ). Outside County Donegal, the name is apparently mainly of English origin (see 1).
