A last name of Sicilian/Italian origin, based on Greek/Roman mythology. The name "Latona" is the Roman form of the Greek Goddess Leto, who is the mother to Artemis and Apollo. Around 1250 in the United States have "Latona/La Tona/ LaTona" as their last name, which makes it the 28754 most common last name in America.
Mrs. Latona is pretty cool, especially for a teacher. I just wish she didn't teach special ed!
