Found records in England dating from 900 A.D. In the English version, Dinges/Dingus/Dingess means 'he who lives in a house in a narrow valley'.

Dingess is an approximation. It is spelled many ways, from Tinis to Dennis.

There is a book on this name, title "Blair and Allied Families" by Burdette Blair, at the Letcher County Genealogical and Historical Society, P O Boc 512, Whitesburg, Kentucky.
