Meaning:Settlement of free men
Break free from convention and give baby a name that will make them stand out! Charlton is a masculine name of English origin that was traditionally used as a habitational surname, deriving from the Old English word Ceorlatūn, meaning “settlement of the free peasants.” Nowadays, however, this moniker has been seen more often as a first name, owing to the prolific actor Charlton Heston who appeared in films like Bun-Hur, Planet of the Apes, and The Ten Commandments. This strong-sounding name also offers fun nickname options, like Charlie, Charles, and Ton.
