Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places named Churchill, for example in Devon, Oxfordshire, Somerset, and Worcestershire. Most were probably originally named with a Celtic element crūg ‘hill’ (which early on was reinterpreted as Old English cyrice ‘church’), to which was added Old English hyll ‘hill’.
