The Anglo-Saxon name Ion comes from the baptismal name John. The surname Ion referred to the son of John which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames. In Old English, patronyms and matronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, "sunu" and "sune," which meant "son," were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word " filius," which meant "son." By the 14th century, the suffix "son" had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with "filius" or "son" were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time.
