Kemble Name Meaning

Welsh: from an Old Welsh personal name, Cynbel, composed of the elements cyn ‘chief’ + bel ‘war’. This was borne by Welsh chieftain in Roman times whose name is recorded in a Latinized form as Cunobelinus; he provided the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Cymbeline. English: habitational name from a place in Gloucestershire, so named from a Celtic word related to Welsh cyfyl ‘border’. Possibly also a variant of English Kimball or Kimble. It is also quite likely that this name has assimilated some instances of German Kembel.
