Your guess is as good as anybody's as no-one seems to have a clue about this. As it's a component of English place-names your ideas would seem to be worthy of consideration. However all sources I've read claim that it's a man's name. The -ing ending, as in Patching, West Sussex, does seem to support this as it's an Old Saxon clan name, Paecca's clan (family and followers).
