Origin, popularity and meaning of the name LINVILLE


Linville : English: probably a habitational name from a lost or unidentified place perhaps in France. The surname is not found in present-day English records but is recorded in Hampshire (also in the forms Lenvill Linvel) in the 17th century. Perhaps it is an altered form of English Lindfield or Lingfield a habitational name from a place so called in Sussex altered by false analogy with the alternation in Norman names between -ville and -field.
