Very uncommon as a given name, but may be found occasionally as a last name. Once people get past the novelty of the name (confusing it with Tim, Skip, Kip, etc.), they like it because it's unusual and novel.

Personal experiences with the name Tipton: | Edit

My cousin recently married a descendent of a prominent confederate family. There was at least one man in the family named Tipton. The family was big on using family names, so it may have been adapted from the maiden name of a mother or grandmother.

Tipton is the first name of my maternal great-grandfather born in the mid-1800s and lived as a farmer and horse trainer in central Ohio. I don't know the origin of his name, but he may be named after the last name of the physician who lived in his area. I was named after him when I was born in 1952. I went by Tippy, now Tip or Tipper.
