Langham Name Meaning
English: habitational name from any of various places so called. Most, as for example those in Dorset, Norfolk, Rutland, and Suffolk, were named from Old English lang ‘long’ + ham ‘homestead’, ‘enclosure’; but one in Essex is recorded in Domesday Book as Laingaham, from Old English Lahhingaham ‘homestead of the people of Lahha’, and one in Lincolnshire originally had as its second element Old Norse holmr ‘island’.
