    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish: habitational name from any of the many places in England and Scotland so named, from Old English nīwe ‘new’ + tūn ‘farmstead, settlement’, or Middle English neue ‘new’ + toun ‘settlement, town’. According to Ekwall, this is the commonest English placename. For this reason, the surname has a highly fragmented origin.
