Keaton is a gender-neutral name that originates from an Old English place name, including Ketton and Keatton in the United Kingdom. Popular translations of this name are “place of hawks” and “where hawks fly.” However, others pay close attention to parts of the name kai and tun, creating a loose meaning of “the farmstead where the keys are kept” or “kite’s hill.” While Keaton is more commonly a last name—as exemplified by actors Diane Keaton and Michael Keaton—it can also be used as a first name. This soaring name will inspire baby to take flight and lead a life of travel, freedom, and adventure.
