Brixton??? That’s definatly a different name. It’s a suburb of London.

Brixton was the meeting place of the ancient Brixton hundred of Surrey. Brixton means ‘Beorthsige’s stone’, from the Old English personal name and stan “stone”. The last element is not Old English tun “farm, village”, despite the modern -ton ending. It was recorded as Brixiestan in 1086 in the Domesday Book. The location of the stone, at the time used as a meeting point for communities, is not known.
