Name Meaning

English (Cheshire): habitational name from Oakenbottom in Bolton le Moors (Lancashire), probably originally called ǣcen-botme ‘oaken valley’. During the Middle Ages this name became successively Eakenbottom and Ickenbottom, with the first element becoming associated with the Lancashire and Cheshire dialect word hicken or higgen ‘mountain ash’ or the personal name Higgin.
