Wilkinson is an English patronymic surname meaning "son of Wilkin." Wilkin is a medieval male given name derived from Will, a short form of the male given name William, and -kin, a diminutive suffix. 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".
