Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire and Lancashire): habitational name from Windhill in Shipley (Yorkshire) or Windle (Lancashire), but in southeastern England from Windhill (Kent). The placenames derive from Middle English wind ‘wind’ + hille ‘hill’ (Old English wind + hyll). The surname may occasionally also be topographic, for a person who lived at or near a wind-swept hill.

Americanized form of German Windl or Windel (see Windels ), and also of Wendel .
