Bloomfield Name Meaning

Jewish (American): Americanized form of Blumfeld, an ornamental compound of Yiddish blum ‘flower’ + feld ‘field’. English: variant of the Norman habitational name Blundeville, from Blonville-sur-Mer in Calvados, France. The first element is probably an Old Norse personal name; the second is Old French ville ‘settlement’. In the 16th and 17th centuries in England, the endings -field and -ville were often used interchangeably; one branch of the Blundeville family continued using the -ville spelling while another chose Blom(e)field or Bloomfield.
