*eƀura / eofor tūn

This name derives from the Anglo-Saxon surname “Euretone”, composed of two elements: from the Old English “eofor”, Ancient Germanic “*eƀura” (boar, wild boar) plus “tūn” (enclosure or settlement, village, town). In turn the name means “the boar farm”. The place in Bedfordshire is recorded as "Euretone" in the Domesday Book of 1086, as is the place in Nottinghamshire, while Everton in Lancashire appears as "Evretona" in Early Lancashire Charters of 1094.
