Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Lancaster in northwestern England, named in Old English as ‘Roman fort on the Lune’, from the Lune river, on which it stands, + Old English cæster ‘Roman fort or walled city’ (Latin castra ‘legionary camp’). The river name is probably British, perhaps related to Gaelic slán ‘healthy’, ‘salubrious’.
