Stockholm Name Meaning

Americanized form of Norwegian Stokholm, a habitational name from a farmstead in Hordaland named Skotholmen, from skot (related to skyta ‘shoot’, denoting a land formation that juts out) + holme ‘islet’. In some cases possibly a habitational name for someone from Stockholm, Sweden, presumably adopted on arrival in the U.S., since this name is not used in Scandinavia.
