This name used to be almost exclusively a surname, but in recent years has become a popular given name for boys in the US. It seems to be generally agreed that it is derived from an Old English phrase meaning "Place of Hawks," "Where Hawks Go" or something similar. One site defines it as "shed town" but all the others seem to go with the hawk idea. In any case "ton" in Old English certainly means place or settlement.

The Old English word for hawk is "havec" or "hafoc" if that helps you in your researches. Shed is "scipen."
