In the medieval era, many different cultural groups lived in the German states. There are thus many regional variations of German surnames from that era. Westphalians spoke Low German, which is similar to modern Dutch. Many German names carry suffixes that identify where they came from. Others have phrases attached that identify something about the original bearer. Other variations in German names resulted from the fact that medieval scribes worked without the aid of any spelling rules. The spelling variations of the name Armann include Armin, Arminn, Arman, Armane, Armann, Armen, Armenius and many more.

First found in Bavaria, where this family name is considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development in Europe. The family Armin became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile. The name Armin is a popular first name, and it comes from Arminius, which is Latin for the German Hermann. Hermann the Cherusker (16 B.C.-21 A.D.,) or Arminius, is the most famous bearer of this name; as the liberator of Germany, he and his forces destroyed a Roman legion in 9 A.D. in the Teutoberger Forest.

Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Armann or a variant listed above:
