Etymology[edit]

From Middle English Cantebrigge, or Grentebrige, from Old English Grantebryċg (Granta-bridge). Granta is of unknown origin but is an identified Brythonic settlement, Cair Grauth. By Middle English when the name of the settlement had changed to "Cantebrigge" and eventually "Cambridge", the lower stretches of the River Granta were renamed Cam by back-formation from Cambridge.
