creighton

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. Scottish and Irish: habitational name from Crichton, near Edinburgh, first recorded c.1128 in the form Crectune, in 1287 as Crecton, and in 1360 as Creychtona. The name is probably an early hybrid compound of Old Welsh creic ‘rock’ + Older Scots tun ‘farm’, ‘settlement’ (Old English tūn). In the British Isles, this spelling of the name is now found chiefly in northern Ireland; the more usual Scottish forms are Crichton and Crighton.
  2. Irish: sometimes used for Gaelic Ó Creacháin or Ó Criocháin (see Crehan 2).
  3. English: habitational name from Creighton in Staffordshire or Creaton in Northamptonshire, both named with Celtic creig ‘rock’ + Old English tūn ‘settlement’.
