Name Meaning

1 English (Sussex, Essex, and Kent): unexplained. Reaney derives it from Vynall's Farm in Pebmarsh in Essex, but it seems more likely that the surname gave rise to the farm name.2 Galician and Spanish (Viñal): habitational name from any of six places in Galicia named Viñal, from a derivative of viña ‘vineyard’.3 in some cases also a Castilianized spelling of Catalan Vinyal, of the same derivation as Spanish Viñal.
