Name Meaning

English (chiefly south Lancashire):1. variant spelling of Haworth . 2. habitational name from Howarth in the parish of Rochdale, Lancashire, apparently so called from Old English hōh ‘mound’ + worð ‘enclosure’. However, if the 13th-century form Halwerdeword refers to this place, the first element may instead be Middle English halleward ‘keeper of a hall’ or represent a personal name such as Old English Æðelweard or Old Norse Hallvarðr.
