    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Wimborne Minster, Wimborne Saint Giles, or Monkton Up Wimborne (Dorset). The placenames derive from Old English winn, wynne ‘pasture, meadow’ + burna ‘spring, stream’. Given the high concentration of some variants, such as Winborn in Sussex, the name is perhaps also a late development of a surname from Wenbons Farm in Wadhurst (Sussex). The placename derives from an Old English personal name Wænna + Old English burna ‘spring, stream’.
