meaning:From the Glen
origin: American


Origin: English

Meaning: Cole's Town

There’s about a million ways to spell it, but this one is most popular and most authentic. Though it sounds like a cowboy name, it actually is another one of those Old English surname names, meaning “from Cola’s town.” (“Cola,” as you may not be surprised to learn, means “dark.”) It hit the charts in ’82 at number 806 and has been on the rise since -- in one five-year period (’84 to ’89) it rose 606 positions. Colton’s climb leveled off for a few decades after that, but just recently started another rapid rise.
