PRONOUNCED: BEN-ing-tuhn, BEN-ing-tən
Meaning & History
Habitational name from either of two places called Benington, in Hertfordshire and Lincolnshire, or from Long Bennington in Lincolnshire. The first is recorded in Domesday Book as Benintone "farmstead or settlement (Old English tūn) by the Beane river"; both Lincolnshire names are derived from the Old English personal name Beonna combined with -ing-, a connective particle denoting association, and tūn.
