Name Meaning

(1997: 6766;2007: 13700; 2010: 18879)English and Scottish: from Middle English derling, Old English dēorling ‘darling, beloved one’, a derivative of dēor ‘dear, beloved’ (see Dear 1). This was quite a common Old English byname, which remained current as a personal name into the 14th century. The surname probably derives at least in part from this use, probably in part also from a Middle English nickname.
