Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of several places named Whitworth, from the Old English byname Hwīta meaning ‘white’ (or the adjective hwīt ‘white’) + Old English worð ‘enclosure’. The chief places of this name are in County Durham and Lancashire, but the surname is fairly evenly distributed throughout northern England and the Midlands.
