Other Origin(s):Gaelic, Norse
Meaning:From the spring hill; Hill near a spring
Both a given name and a surname, Weldon is a fitting choice for those looking to keep baby connected to their English heritage. Typically masculine, Weldon is composed of the Old English elements well and dūn, meaning “from the spring hill” or “hill near a spring,” evoking images of the rolling hills of the countryside. Boasting quite the background, Weldon was made popular by the Normans in the 10th century and even made its way over to Ireland, where it became Gaelicized as de Bhéalatún.
