Bingham Origin and Meaning

The name Bingham is a boy's name meaning "homestead at a hollow".

Bingham is the unusual surname name chosen by Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy for their son. It was Bellamy's mother's maiden name, and the nickname Bing, coincidentally, belongs to almost-stepfather Kurt Russell's dad. We haven't heard Bing since crooner Crosby, but it does have a lot of zing.

Ryan Bingham was the name of the George Clooney character in Up in the Air.
