    Name Meaning

    English (Sussex): habitational name from Borden in Kent or Bordon in Hampshire. The one in Kent is perhaps derived from Old English bord ‘board, plank’ or bor ‘hill’ + denu ‘valley’ or denn ‘(swine) pasture’. Bordon in Hampshire is ‘Burdon's valley’, from the Middle English surname Burdon + Middle English dene ‘valley’ (Old English denu).
