Eltringham Name Meaning
English: habitational name from a village in Northumbria, named from Old English Ælfheringaham ‘homestead (Old English ham) of the people of Ælfhere’; the t was inserted for the sake of euphony after the name had been collapsed in pronunciation. The surname is still largely restricted to the Newcastle area.
