Meaning:Town with a stream
Welton is a boy’s name of Old English origin. While the suffix ton is a Saxon term for an enclosure, wel suggests a place of springing or bubbling waters. Put the two together, and the moniker roughly means “town with a stream.” The name of so many places across Cumbria, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, and East Yorkshire, one even finds mentions of it in the Doomsday Survey of the 12th century. Choosing Welton for your little one is one way to help them stay connected to their roots all through life.
