Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Reddish (Lancashire), recorded as Rediche in 1212 and Reedyche in 1325, Redditch in Tardebigge (Worcestershire), recorded as la Rededich in 1247, or perhaps from Reddish in Lymm (Cheshire), recorded as Ruedis in the 13th century, or Reddish in Taxal (Cheshire). The Lancashire placename probably derives from Old English hrēod ‘reed’ + dīc ‘ditch’. The Worcestershire placename derives from Old English rēad ‘red’ + dīc. Reddish in Lymm (Cheshire) derives from Old English rūh ‘rough’ + edisc ‘enclosure’. Reddish in Taxal (Cheshire) probably has the same etymology as the Lancashire placename.
