Meaning & History

Means "New Mountain".

This name originated from people coming to America from Japan. I believe it is three generations old. The Niyama family from the Hiroshima Prefecture had some of their relatives change their last name to Shinyama so more of them could come over. They landed in Hawai'i and that is where most set down roots.
