Grandon comes from an English surname. It may have originated as a variant form of Grantham, possibly meaning “Granta’s homestead” or “Granta’s settlement”, Granta being an Old English given name of unknown meaning. However, the first part of the name may also have been used to refer to gravel and might have referred to a homestead on a gravelly or sandy soil. It could also be derived from Grench grande meaning “great”, or as a variant of Crandon meaning either “green hill” or crane’s hill”; the second element comes from Old English dun (hill) while the first part element may be from either Old English grene (green) or cran (crane).
