Meaning & Origins

Apparently of Shakespearean origin. This was the name of the daughter of Shylock in The Merchant of Venice (1596). Shakespeare's source has not been established, but he presumably intended it to pass as a typically Jewish name. It may be from a biblical name that appeared, in the translations available in Shakespeare's day, as Jesca (Genesis 11:29; Iscah in the Authorized Version). This occurs in a somewhat obscure genealogical passage; Iscah appears to have been Abraham's niece. Notable bearers of the name include the British actress Jessica Tandy (1909–94), the British writer Jessica Mitford (1917–96), and the American actress Jessica Lange (b. 1949). The name has been extremely popular since the 1990s.
37th in the U.S.
English: habitational name from any of the many places called Alton, in Derbyshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire, and elsewhere. The origin is various: Alton in Derbyshire and Alton Grange in Leicestershire probably have as their first element Old English (e)ald ‘old’. Those in Hampshire, Dorset, and Wiltshire are at the sources of rivers, and are named in Old English as ‘settlement (tūn) at the source (ǣwiell)’. Others derive from various Old English personal names; for example, the one in Staffordshire is formed with an unattested personal name, Ælfa, and one in Worcestershire, Eanulfintun in 1023, is ‘settlement associated with (-ing) Ēanwulf’.
