Name Meaning

Scottish: habitational name for someone from Dinwoodie near Dumfries. The place name is of uncertain derivation; it is first recorded in 1296 in the form Dinwithie, Dunwythye (then later 1482 Donwethy, 1503 Dunwedy, 1578 Dumwiddie) and is probably named with British words that are ancestors of Welsh din ‘forest’ + gwydd ‘shrubs’, ‘bushes’.
