Meaning & History

It may be of Old Celtic origin, from the Celtic female personal names: Isemeine, Isemay, Ismaine. These were first recorded in the late 12th and 13th Centuries in Norfolk and Suffolk.
However, there is also the possibility that it may be of Old Germanic origin, from the personal name Ismagin, Iron-strength. This was probably introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066.
