Worthing Name Meaning
English: habitational name from either of two places called Worthing, in Sussex and Norfolk. The Norfolk place name is probably from Old English worðign ‘the enclosure’, while the Sussex one is derived from an unattested Old English personal name, Weorð, (from Old English weorð ‘worthy’) + -ingas ‘people of’.
