Dalton

from the valley town; the settlement in the valley
ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 621
Sounding like the proper English surname it was derived from, Dalton is all about being smart and trendy with equal parts cool and nerdy. Dalton, which comes from “dael” or “valley,” and “tun,” or “settlement,” may have peaked in the 1990s, but that’s okay. It means your child won’t be in a classroom full of Daltons.
