Meaning & Origins

Vernacular form of the Greek name Hieronymos, derived from hieros ‘holy’ + onoma ‘name’. St Jerome (c.342–420) was a citizen of the Eastern Roman Empire, who bore the Greek names Eusebios Hieronymos Sophronios; he was chiefly responsible for the translation into Latin of the Bible, the Vulgate. He also wrote many works of commentary and exposition on the Bible, and is regarded as one of the Doctors of the Church. The Greek form of the name was used occasionally in England; it is recorded in Nottinghamshire, for example, in the late 16th century. Both Jerome and Jeronimus are found in Yorkshire and elsewhere from that date onwards. The name was borne by the British writer Jerome K. Jerome (1859–1927), the American songwriter Jerome Kern (1885–1945), and the American ballet dancer and choreographer Jerome Robbins (1918–98).
436th in the U.S.
Jewish (Ashkenazic) and German: habitational name from the city of Berlin, capital of Germany. This city takes its name from a West Slavic word meaning ‘river rake’, a scaffold of beams built over a river to prevent logs from jamming; the river in question is the Spree. Folk etymology, however, has put a bear into the arms of the city, as if the name were derived from Bärlin, a diminutive of Bär ‘bear’. The German name is also found in the Hamburg area, where it may be derived from the village of the same name, but uncertain origin, in Holstein. In some cases the Jewish name may be a patronymic from a pet form of the Yiddish personal name Ber (see Berenson).
