Family name origins & meanings:
- English : habitational name from any of various places so called. Most, including those in Cumbria, Herefordshire, Norfolk, and East and North Yorkshire, are named from an Old English wilig ‘willow’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. One in Somerset and another in Wiltshire have as their first element Old English wiell(a) ‘spring’, ‘stream’. The one that has given its name to the county of Wiltshire is named for the Wylye river, on which it stands (an ancient British river name, perhaps meaning ‘capricious’).
