Hastings is a surname of English and Irish origin, and is used also as a given name.


As a surname Hastings may sometimes be a patronymic surname from the Anglo-Norman personal name Hasting (also Hastain), but is usually a toponymic surname from Hastings in Sussex.[1] It is a common surname in Ireland, where it is thought to often be a rough phonetic Anglicization of the Irish Gaelic sept of Ó hOistín who were kin of the MacDermots of Connacht, first Anglicized as Hestin and Histon, then later Hastings.[2][3]
