The Jamme family can find its origins within the landscape of Medieval France, particularly in that coastal region once known as Normandy. Their name is derived from the given name Binyamin, which means the son of the south, comes from The Bible, which tells that Benjamin was the youngest son of Jacob and the father of one of the twelve tribes of Israel.

Jamme Early Origins



The surname Jamme was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy.

Jamme Spelling Variations



Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Jamme, including Benjamin, Jamin, Jamine, Jaminet, Jamet, Jammet, Jammes, Jamme, Jameton, Jamot and many more.
