Herndon is an American and British surname-turned-first name whose meaning is difficult to pinpoint. A habitational name for many places throughout England, Herndon is debated to mean “heron valley” or “dweller in a nook.” Another source suggests Herndon comes from the Old English words hearg, meaning “hilltop sanctuary” and “pagan temple,” and dun, meaning “dark” or “brown.” No matter where baby calls home or their spiritual path leads, Herndon is steeped in rustic, mystical charm that embraces every possibility.
