Congratulations on having a local community centre named after you. Quite the lasting memorial!

Generally speaking I don't approve of naming things after people still alive. An exception has been made in this case.

Kelso Abbey charters show the area around current Cameron Toll as Camerun or Cambrun or Cambrun. That was around the early 1200s. In Brittonic, 'cam' is a crook or bend. Rynn is a point of land. This may or may not be the derivation but the area (Cameron Toll) has had similar forms of name ever since.

CP the name 'Cameron' which is a Gaelic form for 'broken nose' or 'crooked nose'
