Irving is of Scottish territoral origin and possibly originated the name of an old parish in Dumfriesshire, or from Irvine in Strathclyde. It is of Gaelic origin and from the words 'ir' meaning green or fresh and 'afon' meaning water. It could also originate from Old English "Eoforwine" which translates as friend of the wild boar.
