The second element is in all cases Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. In the case of Linton in Northumberland the first element is a British river name, Lyne (related to Welsh lliant ‘stream’), while Linton in Kent is ‘estate associated with a man called Lill or Lilla’. The other places of this name normally have as their first element Old English lind ‘lime tree’ or līn ‘flax’, but occasionally perhaps hlynn ‘torrent’ or hlinc ‘hillside’.
