Ammerman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

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.

Early Origins of the Ammerman family

The surname Ammerman was first found in Switzerland and Bavaria, where Ammerman emerged in medieval times as one of the notable families of these regions. Among early mentions of the name is Michael Immer, who was a Lutheran parish priest in Bayreuth from 1536 to 1545.
