    Name Meaning

    English: either a topographic name for someone who lived ‘by the hazels’, or a habitational name from Haslam (Lancashire), in both cases from Old English hæsel or Old Norse hesli ‘hazel tree’ in the dative plural form (-um). This surname has been established in Ireland since the 17th century.
