Etymology

Wilkinson is an English patronymic surname meaning "son of Wilkin."[1][2] Wilkin is a medieval male given name derived from Will, a short form of the male given name William, and -kin, a diminutive suffix.[2] The name William derives from the Germanic male given name Willahelm, which is composed of the Germanic elements wil, "will," and helm, "helmet" or "protection".[3]
