Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire): habitational name from any of various places called Colton in England. Examples in Norfolk, Staffordshire, and North Yorkshire are from the Old English personal name Cola (or the cognate Old Norse Koli; see Cole 2) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’. The place so named in Somerset has as its first element the Old English personal name Cūla (of uncertain origin). The one in Cumbria has a river name apparently derived from a Celtic word meaning ‘hazel’. This English name is also common in Ireland; it was the name of a bishop of Derry in 1397. There seems also to have been confusion with Culliton .

Scottish and Irish (Monaghan): shortened and altered form of Gaelic Mac Haldan, ‘son of Haldan’, see Haldane .
