Origins Available: English, German


The English Rickman surname is generally thought to have been created from Old English personal name composed of the elements "ri-c" meaning "rich," and "mund," meaning "protection." Some instances of the name may have evolved from the name Richmond, which was taken on from a place name.

Rickman Early Origins



The surname Rickman was first found in Huntingdonshire, where a John filius Rikeman was listed in the Rotuli Hundredorum. Other early instances include Robert Rykeman in 1298 in the Assize Rolls of Lincolnshire and William Rykeman in 1327 in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex.
