Etymology & Historical Origin - Kameron

Kameron is an Americanized respelling of the Scottish male name 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 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.

Popularity of the Name Kameron

Kameron was first introduced onto the American popularity charts in 1984 as a male name. Probably considered a unisex name overall, it’s far more popular for boys than for girls. As the name Cameron became increasingly fashionable in the United States, the obligatory mutations and respellings began to rear their heads. Many people feel that Cameron does not translate well into a “K” name. It would be like spelling Caroline Karoline. There’s just something about it that doesn’t seem to fit. Plus, your child will have to go through life saying “That’s Kameron. Cameron with a K.” Even if it doesn’t bother you, it may annoy him/her. There’s also a real gender neutrality to this name that should appeal to parents who aren’t into overly masculine names for their boys or frilly names for their girls. We like Cameron – especially the ‘crooked nose’ meaning. But we’re traditionalist and simply prefer the familiar spelling of Cameron. Although we respect your decision either way.
