Name Meaning

1 English, Scottish, and Irish (of Norman origin): of disputed origin. It may be from a Celtic personal name derived from the element cam ‘bent’, ‘crooked’ ( compare Cameron and Campbell ). This was relatively frequent in Norfolk, Lincolnshire, and Yorkshire in the 12th and 13th centuries, perhaps as a result of Breton immigration. According to another theory it is a habitational name from Comines near Lille, but there is no evidence for this (no early forms with de have been found). In southern Ireland this Anglo-Norman name has been confused with 2.2 Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cuimín (or Ó Cuimín) ‘son (or ‘descendant’) of Cuimín’, a personal name formed from a diminutive of cam ‘crooked’.3 Americanized form of French Canadian Vien , Viens , based on the misconception that these derive from French venire ‘to come’.
