Etymology & Historical Origin - Easton

The name Easton is the transferred use of an English surname originating as a place name. The Olde English phrase “be eastan tune” indicated a place east of a village or settlement. The word “east” obviously signifies the direction, and the Olde English “tūn” means ‘town, settlement.’ The surname developed in the 13th century, but as a forename, Easton is a modern coinage. East is the direction of the sunrise and symbolic of a new day. In the Bible, the east and sunrise depict God’s light and glory. In Feng Shui, east corresponds to health, harmony, family, transformation and new life.

Popularity of the Name Easton

Easton follows the hyper-trendy naming practice of using last names as first names (Mason, Logan and Jackson being the current favorites in this category). Easton is just another example of this. The name first appears on the U.S. popularity charts in 1995 and immediately starts rising on the list of most favored boy’s names. It’s not yet a Top 100 choice, but it is continuing to gain ground. In fact, it advanced over 100 positions alone from 2009 to 2010. The name appears to be picking up steam, so we’ll have to wait and see if Easton continues this progress up the charts. Surnames as first names are fashionable right now and such trends tend to be shorter-lived (no more than two or three decades of serious use). Ironically, the states that favor Easton the most are actually WESTERN states. It’s a Top 50 name in North Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah and Montana.
