Pins Name Meaning

Possibly an altered spelling of southern German and Austrian Pinz, from a pet form of the personal name Berchtold (see Berthold). Dutch: from Middle Dutch pin(ne) ‘wooden peg or pin’, ‘iron pin or point’, hence presumably a metonymic occupational name for someone who made or used such items.
