Characteristics of Camren
Etymology & Historical Origin - Camren
Camren is an Americanized respelling of Cameron. Cameron comes from a medieval Highland Scottish surname and is derived from the Gaelic words “cam” and “sròn” which playfully translates to the nickname “crooked nose”. The Highland Cameron clan was celebrated for their courage and ingenuity, and their clan motto is a Gaelic phrase meaning “unite.” The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Adam de Kamerun dated in the 13th century. In the Lowlands of Scotland, the clansmen are thought to have a territorial origin from the lands of Cameron near Edinburgh. Surnames became necessary in the British Isles when monarchies introduced personal taxation after the Norman Conquest of England (and surnames became a necessary means of identification). Today Cameron is a successful first name shared between both genders in the United States. In other English-speaking nations the name is considered masculine. Cameron is the 12th most popular name in his native Scotland (2011) and ranks on the Top 100 lists of every other English-speaking country (England/Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. It is also the 53rd most popular boy’s name in the United States. Because Cameron has seen so much success in the United States, the poor Scottish lad has now been corrupted by the immense number of Americanized spelling variations. Camren is one such example of this.
