Ringle Family History
Ringle Name Meaning
English: usually from the Middle English personal name Ringulf (Old English Hringwulf perhaps reinforced by ancient Germanic Ringulf both meaning ‘ring’ + ‘wolf’). However the name may occasionally also arise from the Norman Middle English personal name Ringold Ringeld (Old English Hringweald from hring ‘ring’ + weald ‘rule ruler’). German: from a short form of an ancient Germanic personal name based on hring ‘ring’. South German: metonymic occupational name for a ring maker (see Ringel and Ringler ).
