The River Cam is the main river flowing through Cambridge in eastern England.The original name of the river was the Granta and (unusually) its present name derives from the city of Cambridge (Old English: Grantebrycge) rather than the other way around. After the city's present name developed in Middle English, the river's name was backformed to match.
