Surname meaning for "Wakeham"
English (Devon): habitational name, primarily from Wakeham in Devon, named from the Old English byname Waca (meaning ‘watchful’) + Old English ham ‘homestead’, and to a lesser extent from either of two other places called Wakeham: one in Sussex, which has the same etymology, and the other on the Isle of Portland in Dorset, which is probably named from an Old English wacu ‘watch’, ‘wake’ + cumb ‘valley’.
