Wickham Origin and Meaning

The name Wickham is a boy's name meaning "Homestead".

Most familiar as the surname of the handsome anti-hero of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr Darcy’s rival in both life and love. He has a brief flirtation with Elizabeth Bennet but the truth about his ill intentions and past misdemeanors soon comes out, and he ends up marrying her flighty sister Lydia instead.

Wickham is a relatively common place name and surname in England, deriving from Old English wic and ham — both words for “settlement” or “homestead”.
