Last name origins & meanings:
- English (frequent in eastern England): ethnic name from Norman
French aleman ‘German’ or alemayne ‘Germany’ (Late Latin
Alemannus and Alemannia, from a Germanic tribal name
that probably originally meant ‘all the men’). In some cases the
surname may be from the region of Normandy known as Allemagne (south
of Caen), probably named as a Germanic-speaking enclave in a Celtic
area in Roman times. In North America, the form Allman has
probably absorbed some cases of cognates from other languages, in
particular Spanish Aleman and French Alleman.
(Allmann): variant of Allemann (see Alleman) or
in some cases probably an Americanized form of the same name.
