The Param surname is a habitational name derived from place names such as Parham in Suffolk and Sussex, derived from the Old English words "pere," meaning "pear," and "ham," or "homestead."

Param Early Origins



The surname Param was first found in Suffolk, at Parham, a village and civil parish that dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Perreham and literally meant "homestead or enclosure where pears grow." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
