Name Meaning

English: habitational name from some place so called, presumably deriving its name from Old English blæc ‘black’, ‘dark’ (or the Old English personal name Blaca) + hām ‘homestead’. Reaney associates the name with Blakenham in Suffolk, but in England the surname is now found mainly in the West Midlands.
