Name Meaning

English (Lancashire): possibly a nickname from the Middle English verb jumpen ‘to walk quickly, run, or jump’. However, this verb is not recorded before the 15th century. Alternatively, the surname may be from early modern English jump ‘exact, precise’, which is first recorded in the 16th century.
