Name Meaning

English: topographic name from Middle English grene ‘green’ + dale ‘dale, valley’ or hille, hull ‘hill’, or a habitational name from placenames meaning ‘green valley’ (Old English grēne + Old English dæl, dell, or Old Norse dalr), such as Greendale in Devon and Cumbria, Grindale in East Yorkshire, or a lost place originally called Grendale, Gryndale in Loftus (North Yorkshire), possibly identical with modern Grinkle in nearby Easington.

English: variant of Greenhill , with an intrusive -d-, as illustrated by the placename Grindle, in Ryton (Shropshire), which appears as Grenehull in Middle English but as Grendull and Grendle in the 16th century.

South German: from Middle High German grindel ‘latch, beam, pole’, probably a metonymic occupational name for a doorman.
