Re: Meaning of name "Jerman"
The name is found in eastern Europe and in England and Wales. The meaning depends a lot upon your family's origin. In Britain, the names JERMAN, JARMAN, GERMAN seem to derive from naming boys after St Germain and passing the name and variatious spellings to their sons as surnames. Consequently I would expect that JERMANs do not have a single common ancestor. This suspician is supported by modern surname distribution studies which fail to find a central concentration of the name in UK.
