Origin of the name WIKESTAN.
Etymology of the name WIKESTAN.
Meaning of the baby name WIKESTAN.

  

WIKESTAN.  A Norman form of Anglo-Saxon Wigstan (q.v.), meaning "war stone." 

... The D.B. spelling of Wichestan evidently represents Wikestan, a Norman form of the common A.S. name Wigstan or Wihstan, compounded of wīg, war, and stān, stone.  The A.S. hs is often replaced by x, so that the later form of Wixton accurately represents Wihstan.  In the A.S. Chronicle, under the date of 800, Wihstan is also spelt Weohstan and Weoxtan.  The name Wixamtree means "Wigstan's tree." (The Place-names of Bedfordshire, Skeat, 1906).
