Ulverston The name "Ulverston", first recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as "Ulurestun", is derived from two elements: the first is either the Old Norse personal name "Úlfarr", or the Old English "Wulfhere"; the second element is the Old English "tūn", meaning "farmstead" or "village". The personal names "Úlfarr" and "Wulfhere" both translate roughly as "wolf warrior" or "wolf army", which explains the presence of a wolf on the town's coat of arms. The loss of the 'W' in "Wulfhere" can be attributed to the historic Scandinavian influence in the region. Locally, the town has traditionally been known as "Oostan". Other variations of the name recorded throughout history include "Oluestonam" (1127), and "Uluereston" (1189).

During the summer months the Saturday market day is themed with craft stalls, charity stalls and locally produced wares on ""Made in Cumbria"" stalls.
