    Name Meaning

    English (Somerset): habitational name chiefly from Oborne in Dorset, or perhaps occasionally from Howbourne Farm in Hadlow Down, Sussex, Woburn in Bedfordshire, Woburn Park in Surrey, or Wooburn in Buckinghamshire. The placenames derive from Old English wōh ‘twisted, crooked’ + burna ‘spring, stream’, except Wooburn in Buckinghamshire, which is of uncertain etymology.English (of Norman origin): perhaps from the Middle English personal name Obern, an Anglo-Norman French form of Osbern (see Osborne ).
