    Name Meaning

    English:in northern England and the northern Midlands perhaps a patronymic or nickname from an unrecorded Old English personal name or nickname Corna + the filial, hypocoristic, or noun-forming suffix -ing. The root of the name could be Old English corna ‘crane, heron’ (applied to someone with long legs).alternatively, perhaps a habitational name from Cooling in Folkestone (Kent), recorded as a surname de Corninge in 1257, de Cornyngg' in 1334, and perhaps as Corlyng' in 1379, but the surname seems not to have survived into the modern period. The meaning of the placename is uncertain.
