This name could have been derived from the Old English 'hlose' meaning pig or swine, and 'stoc' meaning sty. Another possible derivation may be from the Celtic, the Welsh name for beaver is 'llostog' and may refer to a river where beavers were found, and a third but unexplained meaning is 'a tree trunk floating on a stream'.
