    Name Meaning

    English (of Norman origin): status name from the Anglo-Norman French feudal term franchomme ‘free man’ (see Free ), composed of the elements franc, fraunc ‘free’ + homme ‘man’ (from Latin homo). The spelling has been altered as the result of folk etymological association with the common English placename endings -combe and -ham. See Frank 2.
