Sue/Gloria I watch you both talking to each other on OGFB making suggestions about the origins of surname, the internet has it all, try these
http://www.last-names.net/
http://genealogy.about.com/library/surn ... eaning.htm

The name "Kippax" indicates that the village was first established in a heavily wooded area of ash trees.

I've only just spotted this post.
I had a look at these two links, unfortunately none of the names I'm interested in are listed on either website.

just type "origin (surname)" in your browser, I have just tried half a dozen and it usually finds it
