In Reply to: Re: LYMAN /LYNAM - the same? by Richard Lyman of 1041

The name game - what an enigma!!!

LYMAN has had several spelling variations over the centuries, however it has kept basically the same 'm' in all of them, ie:
Lyman (as we know it)
lyeman
leman
lemmom
lehman
lehmann
etc...
It is originally French in origin and the first use of this ancestral name was 'Lionman',The Frecnh spelling escapes me at the moment.In otherwords- it means as it states. It has since, from family misfortune and name sullying been changed numerous times to the form we have today.
