Graham

gravel area; gray homestead
ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 361
Graham is another name with noticeably British roots, much like Jasper, Simon and Trevor. A classic Scottish surname, Graham actually came from the English town Grantham, which translates to “gravel area.” (That last name should sound familiar to “Downton Abbey” fans since the show’s main characters were Lord and Lady Grantham.) The name Graham became better known in the 12th century through the Anglo-Norman land baron William de Graham, and it has been on the name charts for more than 100 years. "Parks and Recreation" actor Adam Scott named his son Graham in 2006.
