Sorry, forgot about this one.
Birmingham is "personal". It's either *Beornmundinga ha:m or perhaps *Beorminga ha:m, where Beorm(und)inga means "of the people of Beornmund (or Beorma, the diminutive form of the former)". Beorn-mund means "protector of warriors".

... And I think I saw a non-person explanation for Birmingham, viz related to the bjarm- people (which some have tried to relate to Perm').
