Family name origins & meanings:

  • Irish : Anglicized form of Gaelic Condún, itself a Gaelicized form of the Anglo-Norman habitational name de Caunteton. This seems to have been imported from Wales, but probably derives ultimately from Caunton in Nottinghamshire, which is named with the Old English personal name Calunō{dh} (composed of the elements calu ‘bald’ + nō{dh} ‘daring’) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’.
