English (Dorset) and Irish (County Mayo): habitational name from Bingham (Nottinghamshire). The placename is probably from an Old English folk-name Bynningas (‘the people associated with a man named Bynna’), or possibly from an unattested Old English word bing ‘a kettle-shaped hollow’, + Old English hām ‘homestead’.
Irish (Ulster, of Scottish origin): altered form of Bigham .
American shortened and altered form of various like-sounding Jewish surnames such as Bingenheimer .
