Antrim Family History

Antrim Name Meaning
Evidently from the name of the county in northern Ireland. Irish surnames are not normally derived from place names, and this surname is not found in Ireland. It may be a U.S. coinage, perhaps adopted for sentimental reasons by people of northern Irish descent. For the process involved, compare Clyde.
