Characteristics of Keaton
Etymology & Historical Origin - Keaton
Keaton is the transferred use of an English surname originating as a place name from the village of Ketton in the tiny, landlocked county of Rutland. This makes Keaton unique in that Rutland produced very few authentic surnames. It is said to mean ‘hawk town’ in Olde English (although we had trouble verifying this). Like many English surnames, Keaton is mainly used in the United States as a given name.
Popularity of the Name Keaton
Keaton first appeared on the U.S. male naming charts in 1985, following the ever-rising trend of using Last Names as First Names. Keegan and Kelsey are similar examples of this. Keaton, however, brings to mind actors Buster Keaton, Michael Keaton and Diane Keaton. It was also the last name of the family in the 1980s sitcom series “Family Ties”. Surnames as first names are a dime a dozen now. The charts are riddled with them, and since they usually have an androgynous sound, the gender lines are often blurred (although Keaton is considered a masculine first name). If you want to give this name a literary flavor, use the nickname Keats (a la John Keats, the English romantic poet).
