Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in Cumbria, so called from the genitive case of the Old Norse byname Ormr ‘serpent’ ( see Orme 1) + Old Norse býr ‘farm’, ‘settlement’. The form of the name seems to have been influenced by confusion with Hornby . The surname is widespread in northern England.
