Comments and insights on the name Britton: | Edit

Although the name "Britton" can be derived from the french word "breten," (Norman name) it is most likely much older and originated from the southcoast of England (Sussex). The name comes from the Celtic word "britto" which meant(s) "from the south" or "of the southlands" which suggested they were owners of Sussex downsland. The name was in use at least 2000 years ago, probably 3000 to 4000 years ago.
