Name Meaning

English: possibly an altered form of northern English Blamire, which is of uncertain origin. It may be a habitational name from a place named with the Old Norse elements blár ‘dark’ + mýrr ‘swamp’, ‘marsh’. The place Blamires in West Yorkshire takes its name from the surname rather than vice versa.
