    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish: habitational name from any of several places called Stratton or Stretton, almost all named with Old English strǣt ‘paved road, Roman road’ + tūn ‘enclosure, settlement’. Stratton in Cornwall, which may also be a partial source of the surname, probably has as its first element Cornish stras ‘valley’.

    English: variant of Sturton, a habitational name from Sturton le Steeple (Nottinghamshire), Great Sturton (Lincolnshire), Sturton by Stow (Lincolnshire), or possibly Sturton (Northumberland), all of which placenames share the same etymology and early spellings as 1 above.

    Scottish: habitational name from Straiton (Ayrshire), Straiton in Liberton (Midlothian), or South Straiton in Logie (Fife), all named with Old English strǣt ‘street, Roman road’ + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’.
