Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire): habitational name from a locality in the Morley Wapentake of Yorkshire, perhaps Binns in South Owram or more likely High Binns in Oxenhope, which is close to Haworth, where the earliest evidence of the surname occurs. The placename is probably the plural form of Middle English binn ‘stall, manger’ (compare Bines 2).

Altered form of German or Swiss German Bins or Binz , or of some other similar (like-sounding) German surname.
