The word Paxton is a very popular word and it is not only used as the name of a place but also used as the name and surname of a person. But the word is rarely used as a name and its use as surname is the most popular phenomenon.

The word can trace its origin in the Old English and the meaning you can figure out of it is 'Poecc's settlement'. The word 'Poecc' is used as a name in the old English and the meaning of the word is that of Lost. But when this very word used as the name of a place it is believed that its origin is in the Latin word 'pax' which means peace and the word 'tun' is an old English term for settlement.
