History and Origin
Washington /ˈwɒʃɪŋtən/ is a male given name and a surname. It most frequently refers to George Washington (1732–1799), the first President of the United States of America.
English (esp. U.S.): from the surname of the first president of the United States, George Washington (1732–99), whose family came originally from Northamptonshire in England. They had been established in Virginia since 1656. The surname in this case is derived from the village of Washington in Co. Durham (now Tyne and Wear), so called from Old English Wassingtūn ‘settlement associated with Wassa’. Use as a given name is well established, especially in the United States, where it was borne, for example, by the writer Washington Irving (1783–1859).
