The surname Ammerman is toponymic, that is, it is derived from the name of the place where the original bearer once lived or held land. This type of name was often assigned to the bearer after he had moved from the place into new region. In this case, the place name would have been derived from the old German word "immer" which implied a stretch of water. Many places take their name from this root word, such as Immer in Lower Saxony, Immersberg in Baden-Würtemberg, and Immerseiben in Bavaria.
