Warman Name Meaning
English: occupational name for a merchant or trader from Middle English ware-man ‘market trader’ (Old English waru ‘articles of merchandise wares’ + mann ‘man’). English: from the Middle English personal name Warmund (Old English Wǣrmund from wǣr ‘agreement treaty’ + mund ‘protection’). Jewish (Ashkenazic): probably an artificial name from German wahr ‘true’ or warm ‘warm’ + Mann ‘man’. Americanized form of German Warmann or Wahrmann: from any of various Old High German verbs meaning ‘to defend warn or protect’ hence a nickname or occupational name for someone occupied in the protection of a settlement or town or with the responsibility to protect a person. Compare Wahrman . Swedish: probably of German origin (see 4 above).
