English (northern and eastern England): habitational name from any of various places called Carlton (Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Durham, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, East Yorkshire, Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire) or Carleton (Cumberland, Lancashire, Norfolk, Yorkshire).
