Meaning & Origins

From an Old English personal name derived from ælf ‘elf, supernatural being’ + wine ‘friend’. This was not especially common in Britain either before or after the Norman Conquest, but it is popular in the United States. The reasons for this are not entirely clear; association with Calvin may be a factor. A more plausible (though less elevated) explanation is that this was the name given to the naughty chipmunk in a popular television cartoon series of the 1960s.

English: 1. from a Middle English personal name, Colstan, which is probably from Old Norse Kolsteinn, composed of the elements kol ‘charcoal’ + steinn ‘stone’. 2. habitational name from Colston Basset in Nottinghamshire, or the nearby Car Colston, both of which seem to have originally been named from the Old Norse personal name Kolr + Old English tūn ‘settlement’. The first syllable of Car Colson was originally the defining prefix kirk ‘church’. 3. habitational name from Coulston in Wiltshire, which is named with the genitive case of an Old English personal name Cufel (diminutive of Cufa) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’.
