Orton is a boy's name of English origin that was first identified in Cumberland, in North West England. While Orton’s official meaning remains undetermined, some suggest that it may draw inspiration from the Old English word ōfer, which translates to "riverbank." The meanders of your little one's life may be just as much a mystery as the meaning of their name, but hopefully, that river will still be a route worth wandering—twists, turns, and all!
