Origin of the name NORMAN.
Etymology of the name NORMAN.
Meaning of the baby name NORMAN.

  

NORMAN.  A derivative of Teutonic Nordemann (q.v.), meaning "Niörd's man."  Usage: America, England, France, Germany, Scotland.

    Niörd is used in the North; and thence too, perhaps, comes Norman, which was in use, both in France and England, at the time of the Conquest.  It is puzzling to find in Domesday Book sixteen Normans possessing land in England before the Conquest, and only eight after it�one of whom, Norman d'Arcie, at least, was a Norman born.  Afterwards, during the friendly thirteenth century, English nobles carried Norman to Scotland, where it was adopted in the Leslie family, and, like Nigel, became exclusively Scottish... The last Englishman I have found so called was Norman de Verdun, under Edward I. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
