Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Welwyn (Hertfordshire) or Welling in Bexley (Kent), with a suspicion of an alternative unidentified source. The Hertfordshire placename means ‘at the willow trees’, from Old English wel(i)gum, dative plural form of welig ‘willow’. The Kent placename may derive from Old English wella ‘well, spring, stream’ + the placename forming suffix -ing. In some cases this name may represent a development of Llewellyn , particularly near the Welsh border.German: habitational name from any of various places in the Rhineland called Welling or Wellingen.
