    Name Meaning

    English (mainly Yorkshire): variant of Kilham, a habitational name from any of the places in Northumberland and Yorkshire, so named either from Old English cylnum ‘(at) the kilns’, dative plural of cyln, or from Old English cyln ‘kiln’ or the personal name Cylla + Old Norse holmr ‘small island, water meadow’. This surname is rare in Britain.
