Allingham Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Alvingham in Lincolnshire, named in Old English as Aluingeham ‘homestead (Old English ham) of the family or followers of Ælf(a)’. Reaney also mentions a lost place called Allingham in Kent as a possible source; this is perhaps the same as one of the two places in Kent called Allington.
