Name Meaning

English: from Middle English bem ‘tree; beam, post, piece of timber’ (Old English bēam), a term with various applications. It denoted the beam of a loom and was therefore in some cases a metonymic occupational name for a weaver. In others it was a topographic name denoting someone who lived by a post or tree, or by a footbridge made from a tree trunk, as in Beam Bridge in Dagenham, Essex.

Americanized form of German Boehm , or sometimes of Baum .
