The name Soames is pronounced SOAMZ (to rhyme with homes or roams). It is usually a surname (as in the UK Conservative MP Nicholas Soames.)

Occasionally Soames is used as a first name; the most famous example is a fictional one, a character in John Galsworthy's "The Forsyte Saga." Soames Forsyte (played by DAmian Lewis in the recent ITV adaptation) is one of the major characters in the novel; his unhappy marriage to, and scandalous divorce from, the beautiful Irene, sets in motion a chain of events that drive most of the action in the novel (or novels -there are several of them.)

I did try to find out the original meaning of Soames too, but no luck.
