Ingham Name Meaning
English (chiefly Yorkshire and Lancashire): habitational name from any of several places so called, of which the largest are in Lincolnshire, Norfolk, and Suffolk. The place name is from the Old English personal name Inga + ham ‘homestead’. Some authorities believe the first element to be a word meaning ‘the Inguione’, from an ancient Germanic tribe known as the Inguiones.
