Meaning & History

Habitational name from places in Lancashire and Leicestershire named Worthington; both may have originally been named in Old English as WURÐINGTUN "settlement (Old English tun) associated with Wurð", but it is also possible that the first element was Old English worðign, a derivative of worð ‘enclosure’.
