    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Lambourn in Berkshire, which is recorded as Lamborne in 1086, or, less likely, from Lambourne in Essex, which is recorded as Laumburn in the 13th century. The placenames derive from Old English lamb ‘lamb’ or lām ‘loam, clay’ + burna ‘spring, stream’.
