Ting Surname Origin
(Locality). Among the ancient Gaels or Celts the place where courts were held, and justice administered, was called Ting, i. e., to surround; the circle, the temple, or round hill. The Tings at first were only judicial, but, in process of time they became legislative. The most remarkable object of this kind is the Tynwald, in the Isle of Man. Thing, Saxon, a cause, meeting, a council; German, ding, a court. Dutch, Dinger, a pleader.
