Hampton Name Meaning

English and Scottish: habitational name from any of the numerous places called Hampton, including the cities of Southampton and Northampton (both of which were originally simply Hamtun). These all share the final Old English element tun ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, but the first is variously ham ‘homestead’, hamm ‘water meadow’, or hean, weak dative case (originally used after a preposition and article) of heah ‘high’. This name is also established in Ireland, having first been taken there in the medieval period.
