"kettle-shaped hollow"

Bing Origin and Meaning

The name Bing is a boy's name of German origin meaning "kettle-shaped hollow".

When Kate Hudson named her second son Bingham and announced that she would be calling him Bing, it put this zingy nickname name out on the table. Before that, there was only one, further nicknamed Der Bingle -- and he was really Harry Lillis Crosby.

And nowadays it's also a Microsoft search engine--but in any case, Bing has a lot of zing.
