    Name Meaning

    German: nickname meaning ‘the foolish one’, from a noun derivative of Middle High German tump ‘simple’ (see Dumm ).German (Dümmer): perhaps a topographic name from a lake near Oldenburg in Lower Saxony.English: habitational name usually from Dummer in Hampshire, Old English dūn ‘hill’ + mere ‘pond or lake’, or occasionally perhaps from Dimmer, near Castle Cary in Somerset, recorded in 1241 as Dunmere. The villages of Pendomer and Chilthorne Domer in Somerset are so named because their manors were held by members of the Dummer family in the medieval period.
