Burling Name Meaning

English (Essex and Cambridgeshire): probably a habitational name from a place in Kent named Birling, from an Old English personal name B?rla + the suffix -ingas denoting ‘family or followers’. There is also a Birling (of the same derivation) in Northumberland, but this appears not to have contributed significantly to the modern surname.
