I researched this name quite a bit before I gave it to my son. And all the origins I found stated that it means Illuminated Town (Day Town)/Illuminated One or David's Town. Never heard of a ditch town. I like it because it's original and unusual for a name.

Sounds like "Dating"

What a ridiculous name! I don't know why anyone, besides a moron, would name a child "Dayton".

I agree with you. Naming boys Dayton is like child abuse. Same as naming a girl Areola. They will always be targets of exclusion and exploitation.
