The Hinch family name was first used by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. It is a name for someone who lived in one of several places named Inch in the counties of Angus and Perth. The surname Hinch belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The form Hinch grew in popularity after the 16th century.

The surname Hinch was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Scribes in the Middle Ages did not have access to a set of spelling rules. They spelled according to sound, the result was a great number of spelling variations. In various documents, Hinch has been spelled Hinch, Inch, Inches and others.
