By and large, hereditary surname were formed in Germany when most of the German states were a part of the Holy Roman Empire. At this time, as the population of Europe swelled and travel became easier, people began to encounter others sharing their own name and they avoided confusion by adopting a second name. A common form of surnames found in Germany are those that are derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Diemer was a name for a person who was famous among the people. The name Diemer is the German form of the Latin name Theudoricus and it is composed of the Old German word "diot," which in modern German is volk and means people or race, and the Old German word "mar," which means popular, famous, or big. Ditmar is also a local type of surname that comes from Dittmarsdorf in the province of Schlesen. The name Diemer was very popular during medieval times and the family emerged as members of the aristocratic gentry class in the Middle Ages.
