Halston B

germanic
hol *STAINAZ / STāN

This name derives from the Old English place and surname “Halston”, composed of two elements: from Old English “hol” (hollow, or something solid having an empty space or cavity inside) plus from the Old English “stān”, from the Proto-Germanic “*stainaz” (stone). In turn the name means “stony hollow”. The dictionary of English Place names suggests that the meaning is “holy stone”, perhaps a pagan reference, with the place being first recorded in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 as “Halstune”.
