old english (anglo-saxon)
CARR ING / -INGAS TūN

This name derives from the Old English pre 7th Century name “Carrington”, strangely composed by three elements: first “carr” (stone, rock) middle “ing / -ingas'” (dwellers, in this case) plus “tūn” (enclosure, settlement). In turn the name means “'the dwellers at the rocky settlement”. The first Carrington recording is in East Lothian, Scotland. Another hypothesis indicates that the first part of the name could be derives from the Celtic “car”, which means "love".
