Meaning:Tata's homestead
Tata must have been someone special since a surname was derived from the place where he lived. Tatum became a first name in the 19th century but didn’t make the baby-name charts until the end of the 20th century. Though the name is unisex, Tatum is more often given to girls, like actress Tatum O’Neal. But no one has made the name more famous as a first or last name, than hunky actor Channing Tatum.
