Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of the many places called Hinton (for example, in Shropshire, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Hampshire, and Northamptonshire). Some of the placenames, such as those in Northamptonshire, Shropshire, and Herefordshire, derive from Old English hīna, genitive plural form of hīwan ‘household, religious community’, + tūn ‘farmstead, estate’ (compare Hine as the first element). Others, such as those in Gloucestershire, Somerset, and Hampshire, derive from Old English hēan, dative form of hēah ‘high’ + tūn.
