    come down

    come down (to somebody)
    to have come from a long time in the past
    The name has come down from the last century.
    Form : oxford learners dictionaries



    I have got the definition on "come down", but I still confuse. I need more examples to help me to understand the phrase.


    Thanks in advance.
