Other Origin(s):Dutch, German
Meaning:Valley; Hollow; Thing
The boy’s name Dingus is a surname that traces back to medieval Scotland, where it’s thought to have originated from the language of Viking settlers. It’s a place name derived from the Old English word dingle which meant “valley” or “hollow.” The etymological root of Dingus also stems from the Dutch dinges and German ding, which both mean “thing.” In modern language, it’s a slang word that can be used for someone in a lighthearted or playful manner. It’s also used to refer to an object whose name is forgotten or unknown—similar to the way people might use words like “thingamajig” or “whatchamacallit.” A truly unique choice, baby Dingus just might be the cutest thing the world has ever seen.
