    Name Meaning

    English (Yorkshire and Lincolnshire): habitational name from Tynedale, the valley of the river Tyne, or from a place in Cumbria called Tindale, which is situated on a tributary of the South Tyne. The name derives from a British river name Tina (apparently from a Celtic root meaning ‘to flow’) + Old English dæl or Old Norse dalr ‘valley’.
