Origins Available: English, German


The distinguished German surname Hollmann is derived from the Old High German "halla," meaning "hall" or "manor." This name was probably originally borne either by someone who lived near a large house, or by someone who was employed at a hall or manor.

Hollmann Early Origins



The surname Hollmann was first found in Baden, where the family was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.
