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

  

OSBORN. English.  From Anglo-Saxon Osbeorn (q.v.), meaning "divine bear." 

... An Osborn was the seneschal who was murdered in the sleeping chamber of William in the stormy days of the minority of the future conqueror; and his son, William Fitzosborn, was the chief friend and confidant of the stern victor of Hastings.  Osborn figures in Domesday, and has become a common English surname, which used to be translated either Ouse-burn, "dwelling near the Ouse river" or "house-born" before comparison with the other tongues had shown the true relations of the word. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
