They changed their name in 1924 from "Humphrey Brothers" to "Umbro", which is a combines that’s "um" from "Humphrey" and the "bro" from brothers.

In 2007, the brand was bought by Nike, however, it was later sold in 2012 to Iconix Brand Group, an American apparel company that also owns names like Ed Hardy and Lee Cooper.
