Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place of this name in Cheshire (formerly in Lancashire), probably named in Old English as Wæringtun ‘settlement by the weir’, from Old English wæring (not independently recorded), a derivative of wær ‘weir’. Another Warrington, in Buckinghamshire, which may also have given rise to the surname, is recorded in the 12th century as Wardintone, probably from an unattested personal name Wearda or Wǣrheard + -ing-, denoting association, + tūn ‘settlement’, ‘estate’.
