Talking Nonsense in Havering – Surely Not!

While the name of Havering goes back to the Domesday Book in 1086, mentioned as ‘Haueringas’, according to a recent letter in the Times the name takes on a different meaning north of the Border where to talk nonsense is ‘havering’!  Clearly the meaning must have been lost through interpretation, or is this talking havering?
