Meaning & History

Meaning uncertain. It may be a habitational name from any of various locations called Dion or Dionne, derived from the Gaulish element divon- meaning "(sacred) spring" or Celtic dēwos meaning "god, deity". Alternatively, it may come from the given name Dion or Didon, the latter of which may be derived from the Germanic element þeudō meaning "people". A famous bearer of this name is Celine Dion (1968-), a Canadian singer.
