Origins Available: German, Jewish


The distinguished surname Lehmann is a proud symbol of a Jewish culture, which is found in many places world-wide. In the Middle Ages, it became necessary to adopt surnames, since people were moving closer together, and it was becoming difficult to distinguish between people with the same names. The surname Lehmann is an occupational surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. This surname was given to a banker, pawnbroker, or usurer. It derives from the German word lehenen, which means to lend.
