Etymology

From Middle English Cantebrigge, Grentebrige, from Old English Grante bryċġ, Granta-briċġ, Grantanbryċġ (Granta-bridge). Granta is probably of Celtic origin, identified as Brythonic settlement, Cair Grauth. Doublet of Cam.

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.
