Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English and Scottish: habitational name from Hastings, a place in Sussex, on the south coast of England, near which the English army was defeated by the Normans in 1066. It is named from Old English Hǣstingas ‘people of Hǣsta’. The surname was taken to Scotland under William the Lion in the latter part of the 12th century. It also assimilated some instances of the native Scottish surname Harestane (see Hairston).
  2. English: variant of Hasting.
  3. Irish (Connacht): shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hOistín ‘descendant of Oistín’, the Gaelic form of Augustine (see Austin).
