Origins of a Surname - Possibly Eastern European, Russian or Polish?

Hi, I've been doing some research into my family tree and I've come accross a real puzzle.

My great grandma lived in Prestwich, Cheshire, UK, which has the second largest Jewish community in the UK. Her surname was Tevinin/Tevenin, which I'm thinking is maybe Russian or perhaps Polish in origin.

I have Googled it to death and come up with virtually nothing. Does anyone have any ideas about the origins of the surname and where it might come from??

Thanks in advance.
