Meaning:A rocky settlement
Carrington is a British gender-neutral name rooted in the quaint villages that pepper the United Kingdom. The name is thought to be formed from the Old English carr, meaning "rock," and ton, "settlement." Though a "rocky settlement" may not inspire great beauty, there is merit in coming from such a hardy place, not least of all grit and steadfastness.
