Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the extremely numerous places throughout England so called from Old English stān ‘stone’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. Most of them are named for their situation on stony ground, but in the case of Stanton Harcourt in Oxfordshire and Stanton Drew in Avon the reference is to the proximity of prehistoric stone monuments. The name has also sometimes been chosen by Ashkenazic Jews as an Americanized form of various like-sounding Jewish surnames. This surname has long been established in Ireland also.
