It was the Saxons to whom we owe the name Deeping. The suffix -ing or -inghes, was generally added by Saxons to a person's name and means - the land, meadows or place of that person. In the case of Deeping, the name probably derived from the nature of the land itself. Some suggest the name is a derivation of "deep in fen" whilst others maintain that in Saxon times the word meant deep (Old English diope) or low lying lands (-ings).
