Claiborne Name Meaning

English: It has been proposed that this may be a variant of Cliburn, but the latter is a northwestern English name whereas Claiborne is found mostly in Norfolk and the southeast, so it is more probably from a lost place in that part of England, perhaps named with Old English cl?g ‘clay’ + burne ‘spring’, ‘stream’.
