Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places called Worth, for example in Cheshire, Dorset, Sussex, and Kent, from Old English worth ‘enclosure, settlement’. The vocabulary word probably survived into the Middle English period in the sense of a subsidiary settlement dependent on a main village, and in some cases the surname may be a topographic name derived from this use. Compare Worthy .North German: topographic name from Middle Low German wort ‘enclosure, elevated piece of land, farmstead’, or a habitational name from a place so named in northern Germany.
