Thorp is a Middle English word for a hamlet or small village, from Old English (Anglo-Saxon)/Old Norse þorp (also thorp). There are many place names in England with the suffix "-thorp" or "-thorpe". Most are in West Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk but some are in Surrey.

Old English (Anglo-Saxon) þorp is cognate with German torp or dorf as in:

Rheindorf the "Village of the river Rhine" (actually a village in Leverkusen) and
Düsseldorf, the "Village of the river Düssel"

and Dutch dorp.
