Startup Name Meaning
English (Kent): apparently a nickname from Middle English sterten ‘to leap or jump’ + up. Reaney and Wilson note that startup was the original form of ‘upstart’ and also the name of a kind of rustic boot and believe these senses may have contributed to the surname, although neither is recorded beofe the 16th century.
