|Location||East of Staddle and Bree-hill, in Bree-land, Eriador|
The village took its name from its location. Old English cumb means "hollow, valley", cognate to Welsh cwm. Although the name is Old English, David Salo has suggested that it is intended to be a Celticism, like Bree, Archet and Chetwood.
