Meaning:Fern-covered homestead
Farnum is a sweet, springtime name for boys that first emerged throughout Anglo-Saxon England. Coming from the Old English words fearn and hamm, it translates to “fern-covered homestead.” In Victorian times, ferns were associated with fascination, allure, and magic. It wasn’t uncommon for ferns to be given as gifts from secret admirers, either. Your little one may already know just how loved they are, but they’ll definitely get the message with this meaningful moniker!
