Name Meaning

Scottish and English: habitational name from any of various places called Winton. Those near Edinburgh and in North Yorkshire are named from the Old English byname or personal name Wine (meaning ‘friend’) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’; one in former Westmorland (now Cumbria) probably has as its first element an Old English winn ‘pasture’; and one in Lancashire has Old English wiðigen ‘growing with willows’.
