Last name origins & meanings:
- English: topographic name for someone who lived near a
vineyard, or a metonymic occupational name for a vine dresser, from
Middle English vine ‘vine(yard)’ (Old French
vi(g)ne). Vine growing was formerly more common in England than
it is now, and there are several minor places in southern England
named from their vineyard, any of which may be partial sources of the
surname. See also vineyard, Wingard.
