Englemann History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The surname Englemann emerged in the ancient German province of Westphalia, which lies between the Rhine and Wesser rivers. Two of the common types of hereditary surnames found in the Westphalia were patronymic surnames, which were derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which were derived from the mother's given name. The surname Englemann was derived from various Germanic personal names. The name Englemann is a short form of given names such as Engelbert or Engelhard.
