Characteristics of Kolton
Etymology & Historical Origin - Kolton
Kolton is an Americanized respelling of Colton. Colton is a transferred use of an English surname which originated as a place name. It remains as a surname, but it is now also used as a male given name, mainly in the United States and Canada. The name Colton is thought to be derived from the Old English words “col” (meaning charcoal) and “tūn” (meaning town or settlement). It actually developed as a nickname in England for a swarthy person (so called “Cola”). Swarthy essentially signifies a dark, weather-beaten complexion, so it doesn’t have quite the same negative connotations we might think of today. Originating as a place name, Colton is a district east of Leeds first recorded in the Domesday Book in 1085. It was so named for the abundance of coal found in the area; either that, or for the farmer called “Cola” (swarthy guy) who owned much of the land. The spelling variation of Kolton is used only in the United States.
