Name Meaning

English (Lancashire) and Scottish (also northern Ireland): probably a habitational name from any of various minor places named Whiteside, from Old English hwīt ‘white’ + sīde ‘slope (of a hill)’. Reaney, however, quotes early forms without prepositions and derives the surname from a nickname.
