Reddington Name Meaning

English: probably a variant of Reading 1, from the place name + the Middle English suffix -tune ‘settlement’. However, the surname is quite common in Lancashire and Yorkshire, and so perhaps a northern place named as the ‘settlement (Old English tun) associated with Read(a)’ is to be sought.
