swarthy person; coal town or settlement
Colton, which comes from Old English, invokes the rugged darkness of coal mining—its pronunciation sounds like “coal town.” Direct to the point of bluntness, it has become a diamond in the rough among boys’ names with its catchy "on" suffix. Teen Wolf and Arrow actor Colton Haynes, American Idol contestant Colton Dixon and General Hospital character Colton Shore have all solidly contributed to the name’s sizzling heartthrob status.
