English (of Norman origin):
nickname from Old French bon homme ‘good man’ (from Latin bonus homo), or from a Middle English personal name of the same etymology.
possibly also a habitational name from Bonham in Stourton (Wiltshire), which is likely manorial in origin, taking its name from that of an early owner with the same name as in 1 above.
