bloom Name Meaning and History

http://www.ancestry.com/facts/bloom-family-history.ashx


Quote:

Jewish (American): Americanized spelling of Blum.
Americanized spelling of Dutch Bloem.
Swedish: variant of Blom.
English: metonymic occupational name for an iron worker, from Middle English blome ‘ingot (of iron)’. The modern English word bloom ‘flower’ came into English from Old Norse in the 13th century, but probably did not give rise to any surnames.
