Huffington Name Meaning
English: habitational name, most likely Uffington in Lincolnshire, named with the Old English personal name Uffa + Old English -ing- denoting association + tun ‘settlement’. Other places so named are found in Shropshire and Oxfordshire, as well as Uffington Farm in Goodneston, Kent, which may also have contributed to the surname. The Oxfordshire place name is from the genitive form (Uffan) of the Old English personal name Uffa + tun, while the other two are of the same derivation as the Lincolnshire place name.
