The prestigious surname Katzman is a symbol of the Jewish culture, which has been found in many places all over the world. In the Middle Ages, most people were known only by one name. As people began to settle closer to one another in towns and cities, it became more important to be able to identify people. As such, hereditary surnames arose. The surname Katzman is an occupational surname, which comes from the Hebrew phrase "kohen Tsedek," which means "priest of righteousness."
