It was a name given to someone who was a person who was a slayer of men in battle. The name means warrior or solider.
Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Bannon have been found, including Banning, Baning, Bannin and others.
First found in London, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.
