The name Dumar comes from the German province known as the Rhineland. In pre-medieval times, the German people used only one name, but as the population increased, hereditary surnames became necessary for people to maintain unique identities. Dumar is a nickname surname, a style of name based on an eke-name, or added name, that described a characteristic of its original bearer. Dumar is a name for a person who was innocent or naive having derived from the German word "dommer" which means the same.
