Name Meaning

English (chiefly Lancashire and Cumbria): habitational name from places called Pennington, in Lancashire, Cumbria, and Hampshire. The latter two are so called from Old English pening ‘penny’ ( Penny ) (used as a byname or from a tribute due on the land) + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. The place of this name in the parish of Leigh in Lancashire is recorded in the 13th century as Pinington and Pynington, and may be from Old English Pinningtūn ‘settlement (tūn) associated with a man named Pinna’.
