Keeton Name Meaning
English: habitational name from a place called Ketton in Durham or one in Rutland or from Keaton in Ermington, Devon. The first is named from the Old English personal name Catta or the Old Norse personal name Káti + Old English tun ‘settlement’; the second is probably from an old river name or tribal name Cetan (possibly a derivative of Celtic ced ‘wood’) + Old English ea ‘river’; and the last possibly from Cornish kee ‘hedge’, ‘bank’ + Old English tun.
