An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Tingey, like many surnames, is occupational in origin, referring to the job that the first bearer did for a living. In this case, it is metonymic, coming not from the name of the occupation itself, but rather from the product made. A tingle is a very small nail, often used in the making of shoes. The first Tingey was most likely someone who made such nails.

Tingey Early Origins



The surname Tingey was first found in Cambridgeshire, where the name first appeared in the early 13th century.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Confido non confundar
Motto Translation: I trust and shall not be confounded.
