Van Tine Name Meaning
Probably an altered form of Dutch Van Tuyn, a topographic name for someone who lived by an enclosed or fenced-off property, Middle Dutch tuna, or a habitational name from a place named with this word. The change in form reflects the characteristic shift of the diphthong from high front to low front (as in the pronunciation of Stuyvesant).
