Surname COMBS
SOURCE: Location
USAGE: English
Meaning & History
Old English from a Celtic root meaning "valley". Many place names all over England (mostly in the south, like Cornwall and Sussex) take the name. As the name comes from a non-specific geographical term, the Celtic meaning does not prove Celtic ancestry. Normans or Anglo-Saxons may have taken the name after settling.
