The surname Darman is of patronymic
origin, and belongs to the category of surnames known as hereditary surnames
. As a point of interest, the name is derived from the personal name
Armand, and signifies "the son of Armand." The personal name Armand is of Germanic origin, being derived from the Old German word "heri," which meant army man, warrior, and therefore meant soldier. The original Germanic form of the personal name was Heriman; the name in English is Herman.
Early Origins of the Darman family
The surname Darman was first found in Provence, where the family has held a family seat
since ancient times.
The name was first recorded in the cartulary of the abbey of Saint-Bertain, during the year of 806. Throughout the centuries the family prospered, expanded and grew in size. The family, as a noble family of France, confirmed with letters of patent and heraldic cap, contributed largely on the political as well as the cultural scene of the regions in which they settled. In return for their contributions many of the different branches were granted titles of nobility.
In the 1700's, François Armand, Lawyer, became a magistrate in his community as reward for his great services in the field of law. Participating in the events of the times, he was elected deputy of Tiers at the Estates General in 1789. Through the years the branches of the family became more prominent and achieved acclaim through their valuable and constant contributions to the community in which they lived. Joseph Marie Rose Armand, showing the same interest in the law field, rose to the rank of magistrate and legislator in recognition of his outstanding performance. In 1807, he was promoted to President of the Tribunal of Aoste, a place which he occupied until 1814.
To this day, the province of Provence is proud to have been the ancestral seat of such an important family.
