19th-century revival of an Old English personal name composed of ōs ‘god’ + mund ‘protector’. The name was also in use among the Normans and was borne by an 11th-century saint who was appointed to the see of Salisbury by William the Conqueror. As a modern given name it may be in part a transferred use of the surname derived from this name.
