Kamm Name Meaning
German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle High German kamb(e), kam(me), German Kamm, Yiddish kam ‘comb’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a comb maker or more probably a wool comber or fuller. Kamm is also used to mean the crest of a mountain range, but it seems unlikely that the name is topographic.
