    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Pangbourne (Berks), which is recorded as (at) Pægeinge burnan in a 13th-century copy of a document from 844 and Pangeborne in 1086. The placename means ‘spring or stream of the people of a man named Pǣga’, from the Old English personal name Pǣga + the group name suffix -ingas (genitive -inga-) + burna ‘spring, stream’.
