the closest German spelling is DÖRING [DOERING]. DERING is a German
spelling too but not original.
DERYNK is a Polish spelling of the name.

If of interest, the original meaning of the name was "the Thuringian"
(Thüringen [Thuringia] is a German province),
its development: Thuring (abt 830), de Thuringen (abt 1144), Duringus
(abt 1144), Durinc (abt 1290), Doring (abt 1344/1364).
