Adams is a derived of the given name Adam, which is an English, French, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Romainian, Ukrainian and Biblical usage.
So your last name is of Dutch and English usage:) But historically, I'm not exactly sure, like what it might mean... Given name "Adam" means "Man", I think :)
I hope that helps, for the most part :)
