Name Meaning

English: habitational name in most cases from Sheldon in Derbyshire, but sometimes from Sheldon in Warwickshire or Devon, or from Sheldon in Chippenham (Wiltshire). The Derbyshire place, recorded in Domesday Book as Scelhadun, probably takes its name from Old English scelf ‘rock, ledge, shelf’ + the placename Haddon, itself from Old English hǣth ‘heath’ + dūn ‘hill’. The Warwickshire and Wiltshire placenames probably derive from Old English scelf + dūn, while the Devon placename probably comes from Old English scelf + denu ‘valley’.
