    Name Meaning

    English:

    habitational name from Warwick, the county seat of Warwickshire, or from the county itself. The placename derives from Old English wering, wæring ‘dam’ (a derivative of wer, wær ‘weir’) + wīc ‘dwelling, specialized farmstead’ (dative plural wīcum).

    habitational name from a much smaller place of the same name in Cumbria. This placename probably derives from Old English waroth ‘bank, shore’ + wīc.
