The history of the name Dearment goes back those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain. Such a name was given to a brave or bold man. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the word deor, which meant wild animal, or brave, or bold, and mann, for man. Thus, the name meant "wild man," or "brave man." Conflicting records show the name was a baptismal in origin as in the son of Dereman and evidence points to the Domesday Book where Dereman and Derman was found. In the scenario, the name was an expression of affection.

Known variations of the Dearment family name include Dearman, Deerman, Dereman, Derman, Durman and others.
