Origin of the name JEROME.
Etymology of the name JEROME.
Meaning of the baby name JEROME.

  

JEROME.  English and French.  From Latin Hieronymus (q.v.), meaning "holy name."  The Italians have Geronimo (q.v.).

... The Germans did indeed hold fast to Hieronymus; and the old English reformers would quote St. Hierom; but Jerome is the abiding name by which the saint, his namesakes, and the friars who took his rule are called.
    In Ireland, Jerome, like Jeremiah and Edward, has been forced into representing the good old Keltic Diarmaid. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
