Name Meaning

English (mainly northwestern): habitational name from any of the places in Lancashire and East Yorkshire named Kirkham. The placenames derive from Old Norse kirkja ‘church’ + Old English hām ‘village, homestead’ or Old Norse heim ‘homestead, estate’.

Possibly an altered form of German Kirchham, a habitational name from either of two places called Kirchham, in Austria or Bavaria.
