I also take issue with this definition. It is a well known surname that has been around for centuries. I read that the meaning comes from Old Norse meaning "at the ridges." I wish Nameberry would update this page.

I know that this name may sound like a "modern invented name" - at least that is according to nameberry. But in my family this is my grandmother's maiden name. so Kellam is actually a surname that is being used as a first name.
