Name Meaning

English: habitational name from North or South Elkington in Lincolnshire, from an Old English personal name (possibly Ēadlāc) + -ing, denoting association, + Old English tūn ‘farmstead, settlement’. Elkington in Northamptonshire is unlikely to be the source of the surname, for until c. 1617 it was called Eltington or Elteton.
