Characteristics of Weston
Etymology & Historical Origin - Weston
Weston is the transferred use of an English surname originating as a location name. The name comes from the Olde English elements “west” and “tūn” meaning ‘settlement, enclosure’ so quite literally Weston means a town in the west or a western settlement. It was likely given to denote residence on a farm to the west of a village. Location-based surnames were usually given to someone who moved to a new area (usually to seek work) as an identifier, and this place name would generally take the form of the person’s birthplace. This is how surnames spread throughout England in the Middle Ages and early modern era. Weston was first recorded as “Westun” in the Domesday Book in the 11th century, so this surname dates way back. The name Weston is mostly used in the United States.
Popularity of the Name Weston
The name Weston was used sporadically at the turn of the 20th century but it never quite took hold on the charts in any significant way until the mid-1970s. The name has been bouncing around moderate success levels on the charts. In fact Weston reached its highest point of usage in 2010 at position #224. Not wildly popular by any means, Weston is doing ok. It’s hovering closer to the Top 100 lists in the states of Montana and Wyoming – two of our “Weston” states. Like Wesley and Wyatt, Weston is another “Wild West” sounding boy’s name. It’s got that rugged, mysterious quality we like so much. Easton sounds hoity-toity but Weston sounds strong and masculine.
