Origin of last name

NEWCOMB : 1: English: nickname for a new arrival in a place from Middle English newe-comen newe-come ‘newly arrived recently come’ (Old English nīwe + cumen cuma). The intrusive -b- is the result of the influence of placenames ending in Old English cumb ‘valley’ (see Coombe). No such placename as Newcombe is actually on record in Britain.2: Americanized form of German Neukamm possibly arising from a misinterpretation of its etymology as neu ‘new’ + Kamm ‘comb’ (see Neukam).
