The name Acton is a boy's name of English origin meaning "village with oak trees". Acton and discussed in our forums with posts like "Generation CAF #19 (Middle class British family)".
From the experts:
This name's buttoned-up British vibe is what makes it cool - that, and the fact that it was chosen by Anne Bronte as her pseudonym - Acton Bell. That's quite the literary - and may we add feminist - credential for a name. For those with an adventurous edge, Acton is one of the highest peaks in Antarctica.
