I am looking for a PHP function, where I can pass in an array, and a key name, and it will return a sum for all those keys in the array....Ideally it would work with multi-dimensional arrays.

try:

array_sum_key( $arr, "keyname")

Should work on MD arrays.
function array_sum_key( $arr, $index = null ){

    if(!is_array( $arr ) || sizeof( $arr ) < 1){

        return 0;

    }

    $ret = 0;

    foreach( $arr as $id => $data ){

        if( isset( $index )  ){

            $ret += (isset( $data[$index] )) ? $data[$index] : 0;

        }else{

            $ret += $data;

        }

    }

    return $ret;

}

FYI result:

a = array
  'x1' =>
    array
      'x' => int 2
      0 => int 3
      1 => int 4
  'x2' =>
    array
      'x' => int 4
      0 => int 3
      1 => int 4
  'x3' =>
    array
      'x' => int 2
      0 => int 3
      1 => int 4
  'x4' =>
    array
      'x' => int 10
      0 => int 3
      1 => int 4

array_sum_key( $a, "x") = 18

Just a little enhancement for recursive sum with no points to deserve.

So it can support group sums like

$a=array('x2'=>1,2,3,'x'=>array(1,2,3,4),'x2'=>1,2,3,'x'=>array(1,2,3,4))

function array_sum_key( $arr, $index = false ){

    if(!is_array( $arr ) || sizeof( $arr ) < 1){

        return 0;

    }

    $ret = 0;

    foreach( $arr as $id => $data ){

        if (is_array($data)) $ret += array_sum_key($data,$index);

        else {

        if( $index ){

            $ret += (isset( $data[$index] )) ? $data[$index] : 0;

        } else {

            $ret += $data;

        }

        }

    }

    return $ret;

}
