Value: This interesting surname of English origin is a dialectal variant of the locational name Colham, Middlesex, deriving from the Old English pre 7th Century personal name Cola plus 'ham' meaning 'homestead or village'. The placename is recorded as Coleham in the Domesday Book of 1086. The surname dates back to the late 16th Century, (see below).

Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to 'develop' often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.


Carolina"s noble in her heart.
A thousand years ago she"d be a queen:
Royal in her social grace and art,
Outside unblemished, inside all serene.
Lovers line the streets of her domain
In waiting for a glimpse of her affection.
No one but one shall that sweet gift retain,
As all stare helplessly at her perfection.
