An unusual variation of the distinguished title Seymour, Seamour is a boy's name of British origin rooted in the Northern French village of Saint-Maur. Introduced to the British tongue following the Norman Conquest of 1066, Seamour honors its French roots in its meaning "moor near the sea." A name for wild, untamed land, Seamour speaks of an openness to change, bolstered by its close proximity to tidal waters. Indeed, Seamour embraces the changeability of the ocean in the very fabric of its construction, abandoning the formality of the dignified Seymour.
