Meaning & History

From a surname which was originally taken from an English place name meaning "Botwulf's stone". (It is likely that Botwulf was an ordinary landowner; later the place name became associated with the saint of the same name, Botulph, who built a monastery there in the 7th century.) A city in Massachusetts bears this name. A known bearer of the given name is Boston Russell (1980-), the first son of actors Kurt Russell and Season Hubley.
