    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Ayling (Old English Ætheling, a derivative of æthel ‘noble’). This word was commonly used as a byname among Anglo-Saxons before and after the Norman Conquest, and was in use for a time as a personal name. The surname derives from this use rather than from a nickname; still less does it denote descent from Anglo-Saxon nobility.
