Origins Available: English, Irish


The roots of the English name Colemin in the northern counties are with the Irish personal name Colmán, which is in turn derived from the word "colm," meaning "dove." St. Columban (c. 540-615) of Ireland was a missionary in Europe, and forms of his name were adopted throughout Europe, where they were later adopted into surnames. It is thought that the Norwegians then brought the name to Cumberland, Westmorland and Yorkshire. In southern England, Colemin finds its roots in the Old English workd "col," referring to "coal." In this instance the name was occupational for someone who gathered coal, or burned charcoal.

Colemin Early Origins



The surname Colemin was first found in Buckinghamshire, where a record from the Pipe Rolls of 1176 show a Colemannus de Eston. The name can also be found in Southern England in the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
