In England I find the names Dearinger and Derringer. In Germany I find the similar names Dering and Deringer.

Does anyone have an idea of what Dering means?

It seems to be a name for a person from Thüringen or from other places like Tieringen: Doering, Döring, Düring, Thierig, Thieringer etc. = Thüringer, Thüringen (about 830 Thuring, 1290 Durinc, Dürinc, Dorinc).
See H. Bahlow, German Name Dict. : Düring, Döring frequent in Silesia-Saxony-Bohemia.
These names have no relation to "Terror" however to an old germanic tribal name "Thuringi" and "Turonen". The meaning of this name is unknown until today.
The relation "Thier" (Middle-German for Engl. "deer") would be easy but certainly is wrong.
