Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Lancashire and Leicestershire named Worthington; both may have originally been named in Old English as Wurðingtūn ‘settlement (Old English tūn) associated with Wurð’, but it is also possible that the first element was Old English worðign, a derivative of worð ‘enclosure’.
