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).

Spanish: nickname for a darkhaired or dark-skinned man, from Old Spanish prieto ‘dark’, ‘black’. The adjective derives from the verb apretar ‘to squeeze or compress’, a metathesized form of apetrar, Late Latin appectorare ‘to hold close to the chest’ (from pectus, genitive pectoris, ‘chest’). The use as a color term seems to have derived originally from its application to rain clouds and fog.
