There appear to be two possibilities. The '...ing/ingas' bit is Old English (Stanyngas/ Steyninges in 1211- 1240) and usually means 'descendants of' or 'followers/people of' so (place of) Stan's people is one option. But even the experts are uncertain because 'Stan' doesn't appear to be an OE personal name although 'Stein' common in Scandinavian and Old High German names. There is an OE word 'stan' meaning stone (oddly also 'Steinn' in Old Norse who were responsible for a lot of Lancashire names), so the alternative is (people/dwellers) in the stony place/place of the stones'.

I have read that it means 'stony ground', but I've not encountered any.

I believe that the key to unlock this area is TIN - latin STANNUM. Look at how many place names can be interpreted with metals and metalworking references eg Bowgreave, Stalmine, Plumpton (Plumbum candidum is TIN not lead)
