The Name Wickham

, ,

Wickham, UK

Hi Jennifer!

We have begun our search for baby names and considering the name Wickham/Wick. I’ve come to your site (as I do very often) and notice it’s not on it. Would you mind letting me know what it means? I love to know the meanings to all names! 🙂

Thanks very much,
Penny

Dear Penny,

Wickham is an English surname with roots in a place name in England. The term literally translates in Old Englash to “settlement.” So it would have been applied to families in a particular area or settlement.

Thank you for the suggestion! I have added it to the BabyNames.com database.

Sincerely,
Jennifer
