My birth name is Odom. I always thought this was an uncommon name; but I guess not. My father was born in Alabama, and we still have relatives there. We currently live in MA. Glad to know that I probably have distant relatives all over the world.
South Mississippi says hello Odoms!

Obvious that there are a lot of people in the south with the surname- Odom. My grandmother is from Alabama. Don't ask me what town. All I know it was in the county!! I will tell my Grandma I saw people on- line with last name of Odom!!

What is up fellow Odom's around the world, glad to see that we have so many of us running around. And who knows? Maybe some of us are actually related some how. Small world.
The real truth is that Odom is a Nigerian name. The name Odom originated from Ezza region in Ebonyi State Nigeria
No. That is false.
I was told that as well that it is nigerian. But my Great grand parents were slaves in Barnwell county, South Carolina in the 1800's and 1900's. There were 7 odom white brothers who moved to Barnwell looking for a plantation to purchase. I can only assume that my great grandparents were their slaves.
That's really neat!!! I'm marrying an Odom and its kina funny to see that they were Catholics, I was raised Catholic, but my fiance (odom) isn't. Really neat.
