Name Meaning

English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): habitational name from Windhill in West Yorkshire or Windle in Lancashire, both named from Old English wind ‘wind’ + hyll ‘hill’, i.e. a mound exposed to fierce gusts. There is a Windhill in Kent (with the same etymology), but this does not appear to have contributed significantly to the modern surname.
