Name from History

My son’s name is Patton. My husband likes WW2 history and got the name idea from General George S. Patton. Do you know the meaning?
Dear Elindsey (great unique name!),
Patton is an Anglo-Scottish surname. It comes from Pat–short for Patrick–and the suffix -on which means “little” or “son of.” So the official meaning would be “Son of Patrick.”
