Heim is the German and Norwegian equivalent of the English word home. It is a common German and Norwegian suffix in place names (for example Mannheim and Trondheim).

In Norwegian place names, the Old Norse word heimr is often weakened to just -um, -eim, -im, or even just -m. See for instance Bærum, Elverum, Modum, Sørum, Bjerkreim, Askim and Sem. The old form has, however, been revived in some names - see for instance Austrheim, Grindheim, Jessheim and Jotunheimen.
