Name Meaning

English (chiefly Norfolk): habitational name from any of several places called Dunham, of which one is in Norfolk. Most are named from Old English dūn ‘hill’ + hām ‘homestead’. A place in Lincolnshire now known as Dunholme appears in Domesday Book as Duneham and this too may be a source of the surname; here the first element is probably the Old English personal name Dunna.
